We present first-principles calculations of many-electron effects on the optical response of graphene, bilayer graphene, and graphite employing the GW-Bethe Salpeter equation approach. We find that resonant excitons are formed in these two-dimensional semimetals. The resonant excitons give rise to a prominent peak in the absorption spectrum near 4.5 eV with a different line shape and significantly redshifted peak position from those of an absorption peak arising from interband transitions in an… Expand

First-principles calculations to study optical absorption spectra of doped graphene with many-electron effects included show a combining effect from the band filling and electron-hole interactions results in such an enhanced excitonic effect on the optical absorption. Expand
Many-electron effects on optical absorption spectra of strained graphene
We use the first-principles GW + Bethe–Salpeter equation approach to study the electronic structure and optical absorption spectra of uniaxial strained graphene. Applied strain induces an anisotropicExpand

Excitonic effects and optical spectra of graphene nanoflakes
By solving the Bethe-Salpeter equation within the Hartree-Fock formalism, we study the optical spectra, optical gap, quasi-particle gap, exciton binding energy, and wave function of a closed-shellExpand

Ultraviolet absorption spectrum of the half-filled bilayer graphene

High energy shift in the optical conductivity spectrum of the bilayer graphene
Abstract We calculate theoretically the optical conductivity in the bilayer graphene by considering Kubo-Green-Matsubara formalism. Different regimes of the interlayer coupling parameter have beenExpand
Dielectric screening of excitons in monolayer graphene.
It has been shown that exciton binding energy decreases with increase in the dielectric constant of exfoliating solvents due to the screening of electron-electron and electron-hole interactions in graphene. Expand
Excitation spectrum and high-energy plasmons in single-layer and multilayer graphene
In this paper we study the excitation spectrum of single- and multi-layer graphene beyond the Dirac cone approximation. The dynamical polarizability of graphene is computed using a full $\pi$-bandExpand
Van Hove singularities and excitonic effects in the optical conductivity of twisted bilayer graphene.
A systematic study of the optical conductivity of twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) across a large energy range (1.2-5.6 eV) for various twist angles, combined with first-principles calculations finds evidence of coherent interactions between the states associated with the multiple vHSs in tBLG.
