  1. Theory of magnetostriction in Invar materials. S. Khmelevskyi Center for Computational Materials Science, Vienna University of Technology P. Mohn, A. V. Ruban, I. Turek

  2. Phenomenon of magnetostriction. . Applied field reduces thermal disorder orienting moments along field. It is the sourceof the volume magnetostriction in all ferromagnets Re-orientation “Para-process” Applied field induces a band splitting. Small effect. It may be ignored for ferromagnets. H=100T ~ 1mRy However it is the source of para-process at T = 0K Even in non-magnetic materials! Re-orientation of the magnetization along the field spin-orbit coupling anisotropy Anomalous thermal expansion in Invar

  3. Thermal expansion anomaly of Invar-type. ωlat – thermal expansion due to lattice vibrations, usually well follows Gruneisen law. ωm – magnetic contribution, which vanishes in paramagnetic state. It exists in all metallic magnets ωs0 – spontaneous volume magnetostriction for Fe-based Invar ωs0 ~1-2% ωs0(Fe-Ni) ~ 2.1% Magnetic contribution to the thermal expansion can be viewed as sort of spontaneous paraprocess.

  6. Modern measurements at low T: example (Er-Y)Co2 ωs0 – need not to be large if Tc is small. Modern measurements at low T reveals a lot of materials with Invar type anomaly Which has a small Tc. R. Hauser et al. Phys. Rev. B 61, 1198 (2000)

  7. Some Thermodynamics. Vonsovskyi, Shur (1948) Bean, Rodbell (1962) local moment model -effective exchange constant

  11. Intermediate conclusions. • Invar anomaly is magnetovolume effect related to the spontaneous volume magnetostriction due to change of magnetization with temperature (very trivial). • Such effect exists in ALL magnetic materials (even in ALL non-magnetic in applied external field). • One need just to explain why in given Invar material such a contribution large enough to compensate (or be comparable in size to !) a thermal expansion due to lattice vibration in the temperature interval from 0K to Tc. • There is no intrinsic and unique feature of Invar materials, which is absent in “normal” ones. The difference between them only in quantity - related size of spontaneous magnetostrictions, Tc (and Gruneisen coefficient).

  12. Fe-based transition metal alloys. • Classical Invar systems: fcc Fe-Ni, Fe-Pt, Fe-Pd • (technical Invars). • bcc Fe-Co • AFe2 – Laves Phases. • Problems. • One cannot separate a system into electronic subsystems, one of which is responsible for the intrinsic temperature dependent molecular field acting on another subsystem with anomalous magnetostrictive properties. • We should have working approach to tackle with finite temperature magnetism of itinerant magnets in intermediate regime between local and weak itinerant cases (our choice is DLM – “Do it better if …”). • Lots of additional material dependent complications: chemical disorder, antiferromagnetic interactions on frustrated lattice etc. • 50 years of intensive theoretical development on Fe-Ni, which are very complex alloy.

  13. Disordered Local Moments state. Model for paramagnetic state: disordered alloy of the same sort of atoms with spin-up and spin down randomly distrubuted over the lattice sites. (Cyrot, Gyorrfy) Alloy analogy: A1-xBx  A()1-x A()x binary metallic alloy partially ordered state with local moments Using Coherent Potential Approximation A()0.5 A()0.5 – model paramagnetic state above Tc

  15. fcc Fe-Pd, fcc Fe-Pt and bcc Fe-Co Maximum of the spontaneous magnetostriction corresponds to the maximum of the local Fe moment drop in paramagnetic state. Khmelevskyi and Mohn, PRB 69 (2004)

  28. Conclusions. • The Invar effect has common origin in all Invar-type magnetic systems. Spontaneous volume magnetostriction, which large enough to compensate thermal expansion. It should be only RELATIVELY large. • In all considering cases the source of large magnetostriction is decrease of the size of the local moments induced by the thermal disorder of magnetic moments. • The source of this decrease may be different in different Invars. • The difference between Invar and non-Invar systems is quantitative – not qualitative.
