We design materials with theories, computations and data.
We recently collaborated with Prof. Philip Nash's group to investigate the formation enthalpies of a series of Ni2YZ Heusler compounds. This paper includes one of the most comprehensive experimental formation enthalpy data of the Ni2YZ Heusler family. The experimental data offer a rare opportunity to evaluate the DFT accuracy for these important compounds.
Please check out Prof Nash's website, which gives open access to a database of experimental formation enthalpies for tens of hundreds of compounds.
