Electronic structures of the tungsten borides WB, W2B and W2B5
The electronic structures of the tungsten borides WB, W2B and W2B5 were studied experimentally and theoretically. Using monochromatic synchrotron radiation as the excitation source, soft X-ray emission and absorption spectroscopic techniques were employed to probe the occupied and unoccupied states of the valence band, respectively. The linear muffin-tin orbital method was used to calculate the ground state electronic properties of these compounds. The experimental spectroscopic data and the calculated angular momentum- and site-projected densities of states yielded new useful information regarding bonding and hybridization in these materials.
