Half-Metallic Ferromagnetism in CdI2-type MX2 (M = V, Nb; X = Cl, Br, I) Compounds: An Ab-initio Investigation

The tight-binding linear muffin-tin orbital with the atomic sphere approximation (TB-LMTO-ASA) method was used to investigate the possibility of half-metallic ferromagnetism in CdI2-type MX2 (M =V, Nb; X = Cl, Br, I) compounds. The spin-polarization calculations show that VX2 (X
