First-principles calculations for point defects in solids
Point defects and impurities strongly affect the physical properties of materials and have a decisive impact on their performance in applications. First-principles calculations have emerged as a
Intrinsic point-defect equilibria in tetragonal ZrO2: Density functional theory analysis with finite-temperature effects
We present a density functional theory (DFT) framework taking into account the finite temperature effects to quantitatively understand and predict charged defect equilibria in a metal oxide.

First-principles calculations for defects and impurities: Applications to III-nitrides
First-principles calculations have evolved from mere aids in explaining and supporting experiments to powerful tools for predicting new materials and their properties. In the first part of this
Density functional simulations of silicon-containing point defects in diamond
Silicon impurities in diamond lead to the appearance of the well known system of 12 lines around 1.681 eV, thought to arise from the silicon-vacancy complex. This system is produced by various
High pressure and high temperature annealing on nitrogen aggregation in lab-grown diamonds
AbstractsDiamond single crystals were grown by a high-pressure high-temperature gradient method using a molten Fe–Ni catalyst in a split-sphere apparatus at a pressure of 5.5 GPa and a temperature of
A study of point defects in CVD diamond using electron paramagnetic resonance and optical spectroscopy
This thesis reports research on the characterisation of the structure of point defects in chemical vapour deposition (CVD) diamond. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) has been used as a tool to
Electrical and optical properties of multivacancy centres in diamond
Recent experiments have shown that vacancy clusters are common defects in all types of monocrystalline brown diamond. This is believed to be due to an enhanced stability of the bounding 〈111〉 or
Complexes of silicon, vacancy, and hydrogen in diamond: A density functional study
Paramagnetic luminescent point defects in diamond are increasingly important candidates for quantum information processing applications. Recently, the coherent manipulation of single silicon-vacancy
