    Within density functional theory with the generalized gradient approximation plus on-site Coulomb repulsion method, we investigate magnetic ordering dependence of linear and nonlinear optical responses in multiferroic Bi2FeCrO6. We find that in spite of the minor difference in the linear...

    In the ever smaller silicon metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors of the present technology, electrons in the conductive channel are subject to increasingly stronger long-range Coulomb interactions with high-density electron gases present in the source, drain, and gate regions. We...

    Stacked Y2O3/HfO2 gate dielectric, compared to HfO2, shows significantly enhanced electron channel mobility at different temperatures. This mobility improvement can be attributed to reduced remote phonon scattering, which is associated with the smaller ionic polarization of Y2O3, and the...

    Localized charge inhomogeneities and phase separation are described in the framework of the phenomenological theory of phase transitions. It is shown that Coulomb interaction determines the charge distribution and the characteristic size of the emerging inhomogeneities. Phase separation...

    The model GW method [F. Gygi and A. Baldereschi, Phys. Rev. Lett. 62, 2160 (1989)] is an efficient simplification to the standard GW approximation which uses model dielectric function to describe the long range Coulomb interactions in semiconductors. In this work, the model GW method is used to...

    For a Coulomb system contained in a domain Λ, the dielectric susceptibility tensor χΛ is defined as relating the average polarization in the system to a constant applied electric field, in the linear limit. According to the phenomenological laws of macroscopic electrostatics,...
