First-principles electronic-structure calculations based on density-functional theory were performed for 62-atom embedded clusters representing fcc iron with antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic spin structures. The results obtained indicate that the large difference observed experimentally in the magnitude of the hyperfine fields of antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic γ-Fe originates mainly from different signs of the conduction electrons' contribution, and not from large differences in the Fe magnetic moment.
