    Abstract

    Calculations with full structural optimization were conducted by generalized gradient approximation (GGA) with correlation effect correction (GGA + U) based on density functional theory. The stable structures, magnetic stable phases, and electronic structures of the double perovskites of Sr 2BB′O6 (B = Co, Cu, and Ni; B′ = Mo, W, Tc, and Re; and BB′ = FeTc) were investigated. All compounds, except for Sr2NiMoO6 and Sr2NiWO6, can be half-metallic (HM) materials in the GGA scheme; Sr2NiMoO6 and Sr2NiWO6 are ferromagnetic (FM) insulators. Sr 2FeTcO6, Sr2CoWO6, and Sr 2NiTcO6 are stable ferrimagnetic (FiM)-HM compounds in the GGA and GGA + U schemes. Given the small energy difference between their antiferromagnetic and FiM states, Sr2CoTcO6, Sr 2CuMoO6, Sr2NiMoO6, Sr 2NiWO6, and Sr2NiReO6 can coexist. The mechanisms of the HM-FiM properties can be described by d-d′ hybridization with double-exchange interaction.
