The first principles density functional theory (DFT) is applied to study effects of molecular adsorption on optical losses of silver (111) surface. The ground states of the systems including water, methanol, and ethanol molecules adsorbed on Ag (111) surface were obtained by the total energy minimization method within the local density approximation (LDA). Optical functions were calculated within the Random Phase Approximation (RPA) approach. Contribution of the surface states to optical losses…

Ethanol adsorption on the Si (111) surface: first principles study.
Analysis of atom and orbital resolved projected density of states indicates substantial modifications of the Si surface valence and conduction electron bands due to the adsorption of ethanol affecting the electronic properties of the surface.
SERS Chemical Enhancement of Water Molecules from Halide Ion Coadsorption and Photoinduced Charge Transfer on Silver Electrodes
The surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) signal of water is hard to be measured due to its very small Raman scattering cross section and weak adsorption on coinage metals, only electrochemical
First-Principles Study on Electronic Structures and Optical Properties of Doped Ag Crystal
By using the first-principles calculation based on density functional theory, we investigate the electronic structures and optical properties of Cl-doped Ag crystal. The results show that the
Catalytic generation of negative ions at metal surfaces with water adlayers
AbstractA metal target surface was irradiated with a positive helium ion beam, and the scattered ions were counted using magnetic and electric filters that permitted exclusive passage of either
Quantum coherence-assisted propagation of surface plasmon polaritons
We theoretically demonstrate coherent control over propagation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPP), at both telecommunication and visible wavelengths, on a metallic surface adjacent to quantum
Quantum theory of the electromagnetic response of metal nanofilms
We develop a quantum theory of electron confinement in metal nanofilms. The theory is used to compute the nonlinear response of the film to a static or low-frequency external electric field and to
