Density-matrix electronic-structure method with linear system-size scaling.
  • Li, Nunes, Vanderbilt
  • Physics, Medicine
  • Physical review. B, Condensed matter
  • 15 April 1993
We introduce a method for the solution of the electronic-structure problem in the independent-electron approximation. The method is based upon a variational solution for the density matrix, which isExpand

  • Physics, Medicine
  • Physical review. B, Condensed matter
  • 28 July 1994
We present a generalization of the Li, Nunes, and Vanderbilt density-matrix method to the case of a nonorthogonal set of basis functions. A representation of the real-space density matrix is chosenExpand

Spectroscopic properties and upconversion mechanisms in Er3+-doped fluoroindate glasses.
Fluorindate glasses containing 1,2,3,4 ${\mathrm{ErF}}_{3}$ mol % were prepared in a dry box under argon atmosphere. Absorption, Stokes luminescence (under visible and infrared excitation), theExpand

Real-space approach to calculation of electric polarization and dielectric constants.
We describe a real-space approach to the calculation of the properties of an insulating crystal in an applied electric field, based on the iterative determination of the Wannier functions (WF's) ofExpand

Fano-like resonant interference in Raman spectra of electronic and LO-vibronic excitations in periodically delta -doped GaAs.
The asymmetry in the one-phonon Raman lines of a Si:GaAs δ-doped doping superlattice is interpreted as a quantum-mechanical interference process in which an incident photon is inelastically scatteredExpand

Structure, Barriers, and Relaxation Mechanisms of Kinks in the 90 degrees Partial Dislocation in Silicon.
Kink defects in the 90-degree partial dislocation in silicon are studied using a linear-scaling density-matrix technique. The asymmetric core reconstruction plays a crucial role, generating at leastExpand

Transfer and/or breakup modes in the 6He+209Bi reaction near the coulomb barrier
Reaction products from the interaction of 6He with 209Bi have been measured at energies near the Coulomb barrier. A 4He group of remarkable intensity, which dominates the total reaction crossExpand

Two-photon absorption spectroscopy of precipitated phases of Eu2+ in KCl single crystals.
Two-photon absorption (TPA) spectroscopy is used to study the aggregation kinetics of ${\mathrm{Eu}}^{2+}$ in KCl single crystals at two different annealing temperatures. The sharpExpand
