The comparison of bandgap value of slab and bulk phase [closed]

I tried to calculate the bandgap of the TiO2-Rutile bulk phase, DFT(not +U) calculation shows the bandgap is about 1.8eV, which is roughly the same as the 1.78eV on the Material Project. When ...

In which conditions can the self-consistent Hubbard U value calculated using Quantum Espresso be used for other VASP calculations?

I have seen that some articles calculate Hubbard $U$ value self-consistently using Quantum Espresso code. Then, they use it in VASP calculations. My question is: In which conditions can this value be ...

Hubbard model SU(2) symmetry: manifest invariance

Could someone explain, is it possible to make Hubbard Hamiltonian manifestly SU(2) invariant? I know about the interaction term, but how would kinetic (hopping effect) term have to look like? Here I'm ...

How to use hp.x in Quantum ESPRESSO to calculate Hubbard parameter [closed]

I want to work with GGA +U on Quantum espresso to calculate the electronic properties of Ni Co co-doped ZnO system, but I can't figure out how to use the hp.x program for my system to calculate the ...

How to calculate the potential in Hubbard-U correction and when to apply it?

I have seen that in certain cases Hubbard-U correction is relevant yet I have seen a number of papers that have not used it. So, I want to know if there is any theoretical basis for finding this ...

The Hund's J - Why can this be quantified?

I was reading on the implementation of Hubbard 'U' in Density Functional Theory. The Hubbard 'U' can be thought of as a parameter that accounts for the on-site electron-electron interactions in ...

Database or repository with values for the Hubbard potential U?

The Materials Project and other materials databases have a nice periodic table on their home page that allows you to search for compounds. For some materials, they give an empirical $U$ value used to ...

What is the appropriate way of determining a value for the Hubbard-like potential U for LDA+U / GGA+U calculations?

It is known that neither LDA or GGA correctly account for the strong on-site Coulomb interaction of localized electrons[1]. A cost-effective way of correcting this is by using a Hubbard-like term $U$. ...
