Abstract

Quasiparticle band structures of six II-VI compounds (ZnS, ZnSe, ZnTe, CdS, CdSe, and CdTe in the zinc-blende and wurtzite structures) are calculated using the GW approximation. Results for band structures, calculated using the ab initio pseudopotential method within the local-density approximation (LDA), are given along with the energies of the quasiparticle excitations at symmetry points. Comparisons are made with measured values and trends in the GW corrections to the LDA band structures are examined.

Physics Next Workshops
March 20, 2017

The American Physical Society is initiating a new series of international workshops. These Physics Next workshops will be aimed at fostering new and emerging areas of physics research, focusing on topics that straddle traditional subject boundaries and are starting to “emerge from the noise.”

The first workshop is titled “Physics Next: Materials Design and Discovery,” and will take place on May 15 -17, 2017. More information.
