    Abstract : Photonic crystals (PhCs) are periodic dielectric structures that exhibit a photonic bandgap, i.e., a range of wavelength for which light propagation is forbidden. The special band structure related dispersion properties offer a realm of novel functionalities and interesting physical phenomena. READ MORE

  5. 5. First-principles calculations of long-range intermolecular dispersion forces

    Author : Auayporn Jiemchooroj; Bo E. Sernelius; Irina Yakimenko; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; van der Waals forces; dispersion forces; intermolecular interactions; dispersion coefficients; polarizability; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This work presents first-principles calculations of long-range intermolecular dispersion energies between two atoms or molecules as expressed in terms of the C6 dipole-dipole dispersion coefficients. In a series of publications, it has been shown by us that the complex linear polarization propagator method provides accurate ab initio and first-principles density functional theory values of the C6 dispersion coefficients in comparison with those reported in the literature.
