Magneto-x-ray effects in transition-metal alloys

Gotsis, H. J., Strange, Paul (1997) Magneto-x-ray effects in transition-metal alloys. Physical Review B: Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, 55 (19). pp. 12826-12828. ISSN 0163-1829. (doi:10.1103/PhysRevB.55.12826) (KAR id:50037)


We present a theory that combines the relativistic spin-polarized version of the Koringa-Kohn-Rostoker coherent-potential approximation theory and the macroscopic theory of magneto-optical effects enabling us to calculate magneto-x-ray effects from first principles. The theory is illustrated by calculation of Faraday and Kerr rotations and ellipticities for transition-metal alloys.
