Ionization potentials and electron affinity of oganesson

  title={Ionization potentials and electron affinity of oganesson},
  author={Yangyang Guo and Luk'avs F. Pavsteka and Ephraim Eliav and Anastasia Borschevsky},
We present high accuracy relativistic coupled cluster calculations of the first and second ionization potentials and the electron affinity of the heaviest element in the Periodic Table, Og. The results were extrapolated to the basis set limit and augmented with the higher order excitations (up to perturbative quadruples), the Breit contribution, and the QED self energy and vacuum polarisation corrections. We have performed an extensive investigation of the effect of the various computational…

Electron and Nucleon Localization Functions of Oganesson: Approaching the Thomas-Fermi Limit.

Fermion localization functions are used to discuss electronic and nucleonic shell structure effects in the superheavy element oganesson, the heaviest element discovered to date, and the nucleon localization in Og is predicted to undergo a transition to the Thomas-Fermi gas behavior in the valence region.

Relativity in the electronic structure of the heaviest elements and its influence on periodicities in properties

Abstract Theoretical chemical studies demonstrated crucial importance of relativistic effects in the physics and chemistry of superheavy elements (SHEs). Performed, with many of them, in a close link

Accurate relativistic energy-consistent pseudopotentials for the superheavy elements 111 to 118 including quantum electrodynamic effects.

Results of atomic test calculations in the intermediate coupling scheme at the Fock-space coupled-cluster level are in good agreement with those of corresponding fully relativistic all-electron calculations based on the Dirac-Coulomb-Breit Hamiltonian.

Oganesson Is a Semiconductor: On the Relativistic Band‐Gap Narrowing in the Heaviest Noble‐Gas Solids

The electronic structure of bulk Og is explored by means of relativistic Kohn–Sham density functional theory and many‐body perturbation theory in the form of the GW method and it is found that, in stark contrast to all other noble‐gas solids, the solid form of Og is a semiconductor.
