# Enhanced electron–phonon coupling near an electronic quantum phase transition

@article{Gidopoulos2022EnhancedEC, title={Enhanced electron–phonon coupling near an electronic quantum phase transition}, author={Nikitas I. Gidopoulos}, journal={Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter}, year={2022}, volume={34} }

I construct a simple model to demonstrate that when the many-electron quantum state of a material is near a quantum phase transition and the vibrational motion of a phonon explores the potential energy surface near the transition point, then an impenetrable barrier appears at the potential energy surface which restricts the phonon from crossing the transition point and abnormally increases the phonon frequency. The ensuing anomalous enhancement of the electron phonon coupling is general and…

Electronic non-adiabatic states: towards a density functional theory beyond the Born–Oppenheimer approximation

A novel treatment of non-adiabatic couplings is proposed, based on a theorem by Hunter stating that the wave function of the complete system of electrons and nuclei can be written as a Born–Oppenheimer (BO)-type product of a nuclear wave function and an electronic one, ΦR(r), which depends parametrically on the nuclear configuration R.

The diagonal Born-Oppenheimer correction (DBOC) within the NEO framework is derived, analyzed, and calculated numerically for a set of eight molecules, implying that the DBOC does not significantly impact molecular properties computed with the NEO approach.

Experimental evidence is presented that a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) can be put into a superposition of two magnetic-flux states: one corresponding to a few microamperes of current flowing clockwise, the other corresponding to the same amount ofCurrent flowing anticlockwise.

The importance of electron-correlation contributions to the DBOC is illustrated in the computation of the corresponding corrections for the reaction energy and activation barrier of the F + H2 --> FH + H reaction as well as of the atomization energy for trans-butadiene.
