Calculated magnetic properties of Gd/W superlattices.

Arcangeli C., Jepsen O.

The recently observed giant magnetization in Gd/W superlattices has been investigated theoretically using local density functional theory and the linear-muffin-tin-orbitals method. Two idealized structural models were considered but for neither do we find magnetic moment enhancements over the bulk values.
