Importance of charge self-consistency in first-principles description of strongly correlated systems
First-principles approaches have been successful in solving many-body Hamiltonians for real materials to an extent when correlations are weak or moderate. As the electronic correlations become


Probing excitonic dark states in single-layer tungsten disulphide
Experimental evidence of a series of excitonic dark states in single-layer WS2 using two-photon excitation spectroscopy is reported, and it is proved that the excitons are of Wannier type, meaning that each exciton wavefunction extends over multiple unit cells, but with extraordinarily large binding energy.
Ligand-field helical luminescence in a 2D ferromagnetic insulator
Bulk chromium tri-iodide (CrI3) has long been known as a layered van der Waals ferromagnet1. However, its monolayer form was only recently isolated and confirmed to be a truly two-dimensional (2D)
Layer-dependent ferromagnetism in a van der Waals crystal down to the monolayer limit
Since the discovery of graphene, the family of two-dimensional materials has grown, displaying a broad range of electronic properties. Recent additions include semiconductors with spin–valley

Atomically Thin CrCl3: An In-Plane Layered Antiferromagnetic Insulator.
It is demonstrated that atomically thin CrCl3 is a layered antiferromagnetic insulator with an easy-plane normal to the c-axis, that is, the polarization is in the plane of each layer and has no preferred direction within it.

Optical spectrum of MoS2: many-body effects and diversity of exciton states.
It is shown that monolayer MoS2 possesses a large and diverse number of strongly bound excitonic states with novel k-space characteristics that were not previously seen experimentally or theoretically.
Exciton-plasmon States in nanoscale materials: breakdown of the Tamm-Dancoff approximation.
This work proposes a general and efficient approach that avoids the Tamm-Dancoff approximation, correctly describes excitons, plasmons, and exciton-plasmon states, and provides a good agreement with experimental results.
