2013 (English)In: Journal of Physics and Chemistry of Solids, ISSN 0022-3697, E-ISSN 1879-2553, Vol. 74, no 5, 716-722 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Chemical and strain-induced interactions of oxygen and nitrogen interstitials in bcc V and Ta have been obtained for the first 12 coordination shells in the supercell first-principles calculations by the Viena ab initio simulation package (VASP). It is shown that the chemical interactions are dominating at the first several coordination shells while the strain-induced interactions become important at more distant coordination shells. The latter are in reasonable agreement with the earlier results of a microscopic phenomenological Krivoglaz-Kanzaki-Khachaturyan model (KKKM). The obtained interstitial-interstitial interactions have been used in calculations of the concentration dependence of the oxygen Snoek peak, which is in good agreement with the existing experimental data.
