Abstract

All-electron full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FLAPW) calculations were performed for Co2MnX Heusler compounds. The possibility of using Heusler compounds as injectors of spin-aligned carriers to be grown on standard non-magnetic materials was also investigated. The calculated hyperfine fields were also compared with available experimental data, resulting in a general underestimate for the magnetic atoms.
