"Critical behavior of disordered fcc Fe70Pt30 alloy under high pressure";
Physical Review B, 68 (2003), 214412-1 - 214412-4.

English abstract:
Employing the disordered local moment formalism in combination with a first-principles tight-binding linear
muffin-tin orbital method we find that in disordered fcc Fe70Pt30 alloy the effective magnetic interaction
changes from ferromagnetic to antiferromagnetic as the lattice constant is reduced from its equilibrium value
at ambient pressure. This result explains recent experiments on this alloy that have claimed an appearance of
the new magnetic spin-glass phase under high pressure. The value of the volume where the change in the
magnetic interaction occurs is just slightly higher than the critical volume at which Fe70Pt30 becomes nonmagnetic,
suggesting that under applied pressure the system exhibits two types of magnetic critical points. A
comparison of our results with earlier theoretical studies of the fcc Fe-Ni Invar alloys reveals a similarity
between the high-pressure magnetic state of Fe70Pt30 and the magnetic ground state of the Fe-Ni alloys at
ambient pressure.
