GW correctionsΒΆ

This example shows how to interpolate the GW corrections and use the interpolated values to correct the KS band structure computed on a high symmetry k-path and the KS energies of a k-mesh. Finally, the KS and the GW results are plotted with matplotlib.

  • Combiplot
  • Boxplot, LDA, GW (interpolated)
  • Combiboxplot
  • Gridplot, Si$_{2}$: $E^{dir}_{gap}$ = 2.53, $E^{fund}_{gap}$ = 0.52 (eV), Si$_{2}$: $E^{dir}_{gap}$ = 3.13, $E^{fund}_{gap}$ = 1.04 (eV)
