Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


The Kohn-Sham density functional method is used to calculate self-consistent electron densities around H, He and Li impurities in jellium host corresponding to Li, Al and Mg metals. The differences in the density profiles for interstitial and substitutional impurities are investigated. Residual resistivities, relaxation energies and charge transfer in dilute alloys are evaluated.
