Even in situations where the two-body elementary interactions are well-known such as in atoms or molecules, or atomic clusters, it is not possible to solve exactly the many body Hamiltonian and it is necessary to use sophisticated many-body techniques to nd approximate solutions. Solid State Commun In the present work, we find for SbT eI also an indirect gap [ 17 – 20 ] 1.

For summary the Table 2 gives positions in eV of di erent peaks deducted by calculation of the density of states of and SbT eI. E i is the eigenstate.

Density of State Calculations for Tl3SbS3 and SbTeI

The valence density of states VDOS curves exhibit three bands, with a characteristic three peak structure for the upper portion and core-like level for the lower band. Recently, it has become possible to compute with a great accuracy an important number of electronic structure materials from rst-principal calculations. CiteULike organises scholarly or academic papers or literature and provides bibliographic which means it makes bibliographies for universities and higher education establishments.

Guidelines Upcoming Special Issues. For each step we have compared, judged and verified the consistency of results found and the validity of our calculations by basing over all applied and theoretical works done by other methods [ 16 ].

In this context, we have used the Wien2k package [ 12 – 14 ] based on the local density approximation LDA. The Table 1 give the value of predicted and calculated energy gap compared with experimental ones in eV [ 17 – 19 ].

All these methods are based on a minimization of the total energy system. SbT eI is an interesting compound for the antimony chalcogenide family.

J Solid State Chem To transform the study of this system with N particles in interaction at the study of a one particle in mean potential created by the N-1 other particles we use the variational principle 3 Finally, we obtain the following equation: We have calculated the band structure and the total density of states by using the DFT theory; we remark the following main results:.

These methods do a rigorous resolution of the standard Schrodinger equation SE while calculating all integral of recovery the integral will be evaluated rigorously and all electrons are, in principle, taken in account [ 1011 ].
