The computation of linear and nonlinear optical constants of semiconductors

Hobbs, David LU (1996) In Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter 8. p.4691-4707
Abstract
We review the problem posed by the calculation of the optical constants of solids and the adaptation of the equation-of-motion method for this purpose. In the past crystalline materials were studied by employing Bloch's theorem, but for amorphous materials and surfaces symmetry cannot generally be used to reduce the computation to manageable proportions. The equation-of-motion method avoids the need for diagonalization in calculating linear and nonlinear optical properties for large structural models of both crystalline and amorphous semiconductors. This approach should offer a practical technique for calculating the optical properties of large systems.
