Abstract

We report calculations of densities of states associated with specific local atomic configurations in substitutionally disordered transition-metal noble-metal alloys, in particular Au-Pd alloys. These calculations are based on the fully relativistic version of the Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker coherent-potential approximation and on the recently developed corresponding embedded-cluster method, and allow a direct evaluation of short-range-order effects in substitutionally disordered materials. A discussion of our results and a comparison with results obtained for transition-metal alloys such as Pd-Ag is given.
