First principles quantum mechanical studies of iridium : a focus on bulk and surface properties.
Recent high-pressure experiments on iridium show a transition to a 14 atomic layer superlattice structure. Since iridium has a high bulk modulus, it is used in many high-pressure applications, for instance as a gasket for ...
A theoretical investigation of birefringences in cubic and uniaxial magnetic crystals.
In this thesis a consistent multipole theory is used to describe light propagation in nonabsorbing magnetic cubic and uniaxial crystals to the order of electric octopoles and magnetic quadrupoles. The first chapter extends ...
