- By using density functional theory (DFT) calculations, the phase stability of Ga3Zr with tetragonal (D022) and cubic (Ll2) structures under high pressure have been investigated. The equilibrium configurations have been obtained after geometry optimizations. The lattice parameters and formation energy are calculated and compared between the both structures under various pressures. The results show that: D022-Ga3Zr is more stable under ambient pressure, however, Ga3Zr will transform into Ll2 cubic structure when the pressure goes up more than 28.48~36.34GPa, approximately.
