Yambo school 2020: new video lectures and tutorials are online

The “Computational School on Electronic Excitations in Novel Materials Using the Yambo Code” school at the ICTP has just ended. In this school we presented an introduction to many-body theory, a new version of the code that include all the non-linear response part. The new tutorials that are available in the wiki webpage. Moreover all… Read More

Computational School on Electronic Excitations in Novel Materials Using the Yambo Code

The Computational School on Electronic Excitations in Novel Materials Using the Yambo Code, introduces participants to post-DFT simulations, in particular many-body perturbation theory (MBPT) approaches and provide training in the calculation of electronic and optical properties of materials. The program will offer theoretical and technical lectures, as well as dedicated hands-on sessions where the students… 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

Theoretical Spectroscopy Lectures

This year I was invited to give two lectures at the school on “Theoretical Spectroscopy” organized by F. Sottile, V. Olevano and G. Rignanese. I will present two lectures on “Non-linear approaches to TDDFT :: non perturbative real-time” and “Bethe-Salpeter Equation in real time” and a tutorial on the Lumen code. All the lectures are… Read More

Two-photon absorption in two-dimensional crystals

In this work we combine tight-binding calculations of the two-photon transition probability with sophisticated ab-initio real-time Bethe-Salpeter simulations of the two-photon resonance third-order susceptibility. This combination is a unique feature of this work: on the one hand the tight-binding calculations allow us to identify the symmetry properties of the excitons, on the other hand the… Read More

Invisible excitons in hexagonal Boron Nitride

New talk for the conference “2D layered materials for opto-electronics: a theoretical/computational perspective” in Rome. In this work we study excitations in hexagonal Boron Nitride that are invisible in linear optical response. We show that these dark states can be measured with other spectroscopic techniques and they play an important roles in the luminescence response… Read More

GW correction on an arbitrary point of the Brillouin zone with Yambo

Here I show how to calculate GW correction for a generic k-point not included in the original grid used to perform a GW calculations using Yambo 4.2. This method allows to obtain the GW correction without the need of recalculate the full dielectric constant used in the initial calculation. As example I will take 2-dimensional… Read More
