The pseudopotential of heavy alkali metals: Nonlocality and d-level effects on the structure stability

  • F. Bonsignori
  • A. Magnaterra


The pseudopotential and energy-wavenumber characteristic for the heavy alkali metals are calculated, by using a full nonlocal treatment of the Heine-Animalu-Abarenkov model potential; the s-d hybridization is also taken into account in Harrison’s scheme for transition metals. Results are used to calculate the total energy; the b.c.c. structure is found to have the lowest energy.

Si calcolano lo pseudopotenziale e la funzione caratteristica energia-numero d’onda per i metalli alcalini pesanti, tramite una trattazione completamente non locale del potenziale modello di Heine-Animalu-Abarenkov; si tiene conto anche dell’ibridizzazione s-d nello schema di Harrison per i metalli di transizione. I risultati sono utilizazati per calcolare l’energia totale; si trova che l’energia minima compete alla struttura b.c.c.
