Study of the structural properties of Co2YGe (Y=Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe) by GGA method


The structural properties of Co2YGe, a Heusler alloy have been evaluated by first principles density functional theory through total energy calculations at 0 K by the full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method as implemented in WIEN2K code. The calculated results were compared with the previously reported results. Generalized gradient approximation (GGA) was used to study the structural properties of Co2YGe. The calculated values of lattice parameters were in qualitative agreement with the previously reported results.
