Computational Investigation of Point Defect Formation and Migration in Nuclear Fuels
08 Mar 2012   Contributor(s):: Susan Sinnott
The stabilities of selected fission products are investigated as a function of stoichiometry in uranium oxide. The approach is density functional theory (DFT) that is used to calculate the incorporation and solution energies of solid and gaseous fission products at the anion and cation vacancy...

Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 17: TightBinding, and Moving Towards Density Functional Theory
21 Mar 2008   Contributor(s):: Elif Ertekin, Jeffrey C Grossman
The purpose of this lecture is to illustrate the application of the TightBinding method to a simple system and then to introduce the concept of Density Functional Theory. The motivation to mapping from a wavefunction to a densitybased description of atomic systems is provided, and the...

Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 18: Density Functional Theory and some Solid Modeling
21 Mar 2008   Contributor(s):: Elif Ertekin, Jeffrey C Grossman
We continue our discussion of Density Functional Theory, and describe the mostoften used approaches to describing the exchangecorrelation in the system (LDA, GGA, and hybrid functionals). We discuss as well the strengths and weaknesses of the LDA and present some examples of its use. Finally,...

Density Functional Theory: A great physics success story
23 Feb 2012   Contributor(s):: Kieron Burke
Density functional theory began with the work of Thomas and Fermi, at about the same time as Schroedinger wrote his famous equation. I will explain in general terms what density functional theory is and describe some problems of current interest.

Calculate the resonance energies and lifetimes of a userdefined potential with a uniform complexscaling transformation.

First Principles NonEquilibrium Green's Function Modeling of Vacum and Oxide Barrier Tunneling
01 Dec 2008   Contributor(s):: Kirk H. Bevan
Vacuum and oxide barrier electron tunneling phenomena have been studied at length for several decades. Yet with electron device barrier widths now commonly measured in atomic units, complex quantum mechanical phenomena such as wavefunction coupling, surface states, and interface bonds have begun...

From density functional theory to defect level in silicon: Does the “band gap problem” matter?
01 Oct 2008   Contributor(s):: Peter A. Schultz
Modeling the electrical effects of radiation damage in semiconductor devices requires a detailed description of the properties of point defects generated during and subsequent to irradiation. Such modeling requires physical parameters, such as defect electronic levels, to describe carrier...
