I performed first principles studies of the site occupancy and magnetic properties of zinc-tin-substituted strontium hexaferrite by using density functional theory. In this study, I determined the site preference of zinc and tin atoms when they are restricted to occupy the same sublattice in strontium-hexaferrite. I found that Zn and Sn atoms prefer to replace Fe ions at 2a sublattice under this restriction and caused the saturation magnetization to decrease.
