Correspondence *Email: We study the time-dependent neutralization of a slow highly charged ion that penetrates a hexagonal hollow-centred graphene nanoflake. To compute the ultrafast charge transfer dynamics, we apply an effective Hubbard nanocluster model and use the method of nonequilibrium Green functions (NEGF) in conjunction with an embedding self-energy scheme which allows one to follow the temporal changes of the number of electrons in the nanoflake. We perform… Expand

Doublon production in correlated materials by multiple ion impacts
In a recent Letter [Balzer et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 121, 267602 (2018)] it was demonstrated that ions impacting a correlated graphene cluster can excite strongly nonequilibrium states. In particular,Expand

Achieving the Scaling Limit for Nonequilibrium Green Functions Simulations.
It is demonstrated that GKBA-NEGF simulations can be performed with order T^{1} scaling, both for SOA and GW selfenergies, and pointed out the remarkable capabilities of this approach. Expand

Ion Impact Induced Ultrafast Electron Dynamics in Finite Graphene‐Type Hubbard Clusters
Strongly correlated systems of fermions have an interesting phase diagram arising from the Hubbard gap. Excitation across the gap leads to the formation of doubly occupied lattice sites (doublons).Expand
