    • Abstract


      The aim of the present paper is to employ theoretical methods to investigate the zero field splitting (ZFS) parameter and to investigate the position of the dopant in the host. These theoretical calculations have been compared with the empirical results. The superposition model (SPM)with themicroscopic spin-Hamiltonian (MSH) theory and the coefficient of fractional parentage have been employed to investigate the dopant manganese(II) ion substitution in the diaquamalonatozinc(II) (DAMZ) single crystal. The magnetic parameters, viz. $g$-tensor and $D$ tensor, has been determined by using the ORCA program package developed by F Neese $\it{et al}$. The unrestricted Kohn–Sham orbitals-based Pederson–Khanna (PK) as the unperturbed wave function is observed to be the most suitable for the computational calculation of spin–orbit tensor ($D^{SO}$) of the axial ZFS parameter $D$. The effects of spin–spin dipolar couplings are taken into account. The unrestricted natural orbital (UNO) is used for the calculation of spin–spin dipolar contributions to the ZFS tensor. A comparative study of the quantum mechanical treatment of Pederson–Khanna (PK) with coupled perturbation (CP) is reported in the present study. The unrestricted Kohn–Sham-based natural orbital with Pederson–Khanna-type of perturbation approach validates the experimental results in the evaluation of ZFS parameters. The theoretical results are appropriate with the experimental ones and indicate the interstitial occupancy of $\rm{Mn}^{2+}$ ion in the host matrix.
