Unformatted text preview: I The two-body term consists of three term as follows: U 2 = H ij r ij + Z i Z j r- 1 2 ( i Z 2 j + j Z 2 i ) r 4 exp [- r / r 4 s ] (4) I The terms are: (1) Steric repulsion due to ionic sizes (2) Coulomb interactions to take into account charge transfer (3) Charge-dipole interaction due to electronic polarizabilities I Above, H ij and ij are the strengths and exponents of the steric repulsion, Z i and i represent the effective charge and electronic polarizability of the i th ion, respectively I For A 4 + and X 2- the effective charges are + 4 Q and- 2 Q , respectively, where Q is the unit of charge transfer I The exponential screening term in the charge-dipole interaction provides a reasonable cutoff for the r- 4 interaction I The value of the decay length r 4 s is taken to be a few so that the magnitude of the charge-dipole potential is reduced to a few percent of the term without the exponential I Although there are six three-body terms in the interaction potential or AX 2-type systems, the two most important terms involve...
