Structural phase transition in FeBO under pressure
Using the density functional theory the structural and magnetic properties of iron borate under high pressure have been studied. At about P = 22.7 GPa a first order phase transition to the phase described by the same space group Rc has been found. The phase transition is accompanied by a 9% volume change of the unit cell, a four times decrease of the magnetic moment on Fe, an increase of the charge density at Fe, and a disappearance of the energy gap in the electronic density of states.
