Abstract:

We perform both first-principle and empirical tight-binding calculations on the band structures of metal-metal and metal-semiconductor superlattices. The materials of interest include superlattices made of transition-metals Fe,CoCu, FeCr, rare earths GDY, DYY, ErY and semimetal-semiconductor combinations Er, GdAsAl,GaAs. The conduction electron mediated indirect exchange interaction RKKY interaction between magnetic atoms in these superlattices is calculated. The transport properties of these superlattices have also been studied
