Magnetic Structure and Lattice Deformation in UO2
One of the fundamental problems in the theory of magnetism in actinide systems is to decide whether the electrons are localized or delocalized, and to determine the mechanism which is responsible for the formation of the magnetic ordered state1. From this point of view uranium is one of the most interesting actinide elements, with a large overlap of 5-f orbitals in the pure metal and a decreasing overlap upon the formation of compounds.
