How strong is the Second Harmonic Generation in single-layer monochalcogenides?


How strong is the Second Harmonic Generation in single-layer monochalcogenides?

Single-layer monochalcogenides have recently attracted much attention in the scientific community for their strong non-linear response, in particular the second harmonic generation(SHG). The origin of this strong response is still debated. A strong mismatch exist between theory and experiments. In order to clarify this issue, in this work we performed first-principles calculation of linear and… Read More

Many-body perturbation theory calculations using the Yambo code

Yambo is an open source project aimed at studying excited state properties of condensed matter systems from first principles using many-body methods. As input, yambo requires ground state electronic structure data as computed by density functional theory codes such as Quantum-Espresso and Abinit.Yambo’s capabilities include the calculation of linear response quantities (both independent-particle and including… Read More
