The electronic band structure of MoS2, MoSe2, WS2, and WSe2, crystals has been studied at various hydrostatic pressures experimentally by photoreflectance (PR) spectroscopy and theoretically within the density functional theory (DFT). In the PR spectra direct optical transitions (A and B) have been clearly observed and pressure coefficients have been(More)
It has been shown that the underestimated by DFT/LDA(GGA) band-gap can be efficiently corrected by an averaging procedure of transition energies over a region close to the direct band-gap transition, which we call the ∆(EIG) method (the differences in the Kohn–Sham eigenvalues). For small excitations the averaging appears to be equivalent to the ∆(SCF)(More)
Phonon dispersion relations in fcc Al crystal were calculated from first principles using density functional perturbation theory, as implemented in ABINIT code. The results are compared with experimental data as well as with the results of previously done ab initio calculations based on the direct method. A slightly better agreement of density functional(More)
We investigate the ultrafast dynamics of carriers in a silicon nanostructure by performing spectrally resolved femtosecond spectroscopy measurements with a supercontinuum probe. The nanostructure consists of a 158-nm-thick crystalline Si layer on top of which a SiO2 passivation layer leads to a very high quality of the Si surface. In addition, a dielectric(More)
