Time-dependent density functional theory calculations for the excitation spectra of III-V ternary alloys

Time-dependent density functional theory calculations for the excitation spectra of III-V ternary... We adopted the time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) within the linear augmented Slater-type orbitals basis and the cluster averaging method to compute the excitation spectra of III-V ternary alloys with arbitrary concentration x. The TDDFT was carried out with the use of adiabatic meta-generalized gradient approximation (mGGA), which contains the 1/q2 singularity in the dynamical exchange-correlation kernel [fXC,00(q)] as q→0. We found that, by using wave functions obtained in local density approximation while using mGGA to compute self-energy correction to the band structures, we can get good overall agreement between theoretical results and experimental data for the excitation spectra.
