Thermal Conductivity of Uranium Nitride and Carbide

Figure 5

The calculated by QE code the total electron density of states of UN for: (a) ferromagnetic (black, solid line for majority and dashed for minority spins), (b) antiferromagnetic ordering (note identical total majority and minority spin density) and (c) nonmagnetic UN (sum of the density of states of spin up and down electrons plotted by solid line) and conventional unit cell. The densities of states of 5f electrons of uranium are shown by red solid line and blue dashed line for majority and minority spin on Figures 5(a) and 5(b) and its sum on Figure 5(c).
