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

Optical properties of extended systems within a current-current response formalism: tips and tricks

In this work we compare the optical absorption of extended systems calculated starting from the density-density and current-current linear response formalisms within the equilibrium many-body perturbation theory(MBPT). We show how, using the latter, one can incur in errors due to quasiparticle lifetimes, electron-hole interaction or the presence of a Drude tail. These errors are found… Read More
