The electronic structure of the antiferomagnetic full Heusler alloys Ru2CrZ (Ge, Sn, Si) have been studied by first principal calculations using Full-Potential linearized Muffin Tin Orbital (FP-LMTO) method based on the generalized Gradient Approximation (GGA). It was shown that obtained equilibrium lattice parameters agree well with available experimental data. The influence of Z-elements on the electronic structure and magnetic properties of these compounds is analysed.
