  • Charge excitations in Mott insulators MIs are distinct from their band-insulator counterparts and they can provide a mechanism for energy harvesting in solar cells based on strongly correlated electronic materials. In this paper, we study the real-time dynamics of holon-doublon pairs in an MI connected to metallic leads using the time-dependent density-matrix renormalization-group method. The transfer of charge across the MI-metal interface is controlled by both the electron-electron… CONTINUE READING
