The activities of the group are focused on:

  • theoretical studies of electronic and magnetic properties of disordered alloys, epitaxial multilayers, surfaces and interfaces as well as quantum-mechanical studies of extended defects in metallic materials

  • experimental investigations of relations among structure and magnetic, transport and mechanical properties in metallic materials

In the first topic the research encompasses several topical fields as e.g. surface magnetism, magnetic exchange coupling and spin-dependent transport in multilayered systems, magnetic properties of amorphous materials, solute segregation in bulk disordered alloys and at grain boundaries and computer simulations of atomic configurations of defects. Quantum-mechanical and quantum-statistical methods are applied to these problems, and most studies are performed from the first principles.

The second of the mentioned topics is based on broad experimental macroscopic and micro- scopic investigations of crystal structure in relation to electrical and magnetic properties, both integral and microscopic. Predominate amount of results has been obtained from applications of Mossbauer spectroscopy. Crystalline, microcrystalline, nanocrystalline and amorphous materials have been investigated. The main idea is to obtain a deeper understanding of relations between changes in crystalline structure in dependence on heat and mechanical treatment, and electrical and magnetic properties.

The most important projects in the group within last five years have been oriented on:

  • first-principles investigations of two-dimensional alloy magnetism and electron transport in magnetic multilayers

  • first-principles studies of theoretical strength, phase stability and magnetism in metals and intermetallics

  • atomistic studies of grain boundaries in metallic materials and development of relevant quantum-mechanical techniques

  • influence of method of preparation, heat and mechanical treatments on structure and properties of nanocrystalline materials

  • structure and properties of metallic and oxidic magnetic materials prepared by non- traditional technologies

  • role of defects in electrical, magnetic and mechanical properties of ordered intermetallic systems.

Special software CONFIT2000 for Mössbauer spectra treating has been created in the group.

Software CONFIT2000 version 4.12.39 (new): Mössbauer spectra fitting

Contact person: RNDr. Tomáš Žák, CSc.
This application allows a complex treatment of Mössbauer spectra starting from a setting of the background and of the individual components according to the selected model by the mouse drag-and-drop technique. It is designed for the spectroscopy of 57Fe and 119Sn isotopes with nuclear spin values of 1/2 and 3/2. An original method has been applied combining a non-linear least-squares procedure with the Fast Fourier Transform technique. An improved matrix formalism allows one to construct nearly all imaginable physical models of Mössbauer spectra supported by a computer-aided matrix model design. It is possible to introduce not only hyperfine magnetic field distributions, but now also doublets quadrupole splitting distribution with a Gaussian profile. In the connection with the distribution it is always supposed that the quadrupole interaction is much weaker than the magnetic one. When the final thickness of the sample has to be considered, the transmission integral calculation can be established. A special parameter can be introduced that characterises the increase in the width of all spectra lines in dependence on their distance from the spectrum middle (on the absolute velocity). The fitted spectra can be taken in the transmission or back-scattering (conversion electrons) geometry. The fitting process is very fast also for complicated spectra.
