Content

<p>Different compositions of Ti-Pt were varied within the B2 region i.e. 45-55 at% Pt using solid solution method employed in CASTEP code. The Ti<sub></sub>50Pt<sub></sub>50 structure was found to be more stable as compared with other different compositions with the heats of formation of -0.8584 eV. We also observed that the more we increase the Ti and decrease the Pt composition, the change of the heats of formation becomes minimal and this was observed on the plotted curves of the heats of formation against the composition range. The elastic properties of the compositions were also calculated.
