Abstract or Summary
  • A shell model for ferroelectric perovskites fitted to results of first-principles density functional theory (DFT) calculations is strongly affected by approximations made in the exchange-correlation functional within DFT, and in general not as accurate as a shell model derived from experimental data. We have developed an isotropic shell model for BaTiO₃ based on the PBEsol exchange-correlation functional [Perdew et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 136406 (2008)], which was specifically designed for crystal properties of solids. Our shell model for BaTiO₃ agrees with ground state DFT properties and the experimental lattice constants at finite temperatures. The sequence of phases of BaTiO₃ (rhombohedral, orthorhombic, tetragonal, cubic) is correctly reproduced but the temperature scale of the phase transitions is compressed. The temperature scale can be improved by scaling of the ab-initio energy surface.
