Recent Results in Semiconductor Dynamics by Ab Initio ‘Direct’ Approach

  • Karel Kunc

Abstract

Of all the physical characteristics of solids, the dynamical properties give a rather complete description of various aspects of the electronic ground state: elasticity, phonon frequencies, dispersion, phase transformations, anharmonicity — they are all derived from the properties of interatomic bonds. Therefore it seems only natural to attempt to trace the origins of semiconductor dynamics back to the behavior of electrons, which ultimately reduces to electron — electron and electron — nuclei interactions. These are the starting point of “ab initio” theories.
