Novel 2D materials for opto-electronic applications : insight from refined ab-initio simulations - Maurizia Palummo

LPS – amphi Moyen

The use of emerging two-dimensional and layered materials in technological applications presupposes a detailed knowledge of their chemical and physical properties. In this context ab-initio theoretical methods and simulations are playing a fundamental role.
Among the large number of 2D materials discovered after graphene, of particular interest for opto-electronic applications is the family of Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs) [1,2] and more recently that one of 2D Ruddlesden—Popper organic—inorganic halide perovskites (2D-RPPs) [3].

The aim of my talk is to show how the use of parameter-free atomistic simulations can contribute to improve the microscopic understanding of the opto-electronic properties of these two classes of novel 2D materials and to predict new ones. I will show how ab-initio DFT and post-DFT (GW and BSE) calculations, based on Many-Body Perturbation Theory (MBPT), provide a very useful scheme to explain : i) the giant electronic band-gaps renormalization ii) the strong light-matter interaction iii) the presence of strongly bound excitons. I will also discuss how to calculate in a fully ab- initio framework the exciton radiative lifetimes [4] and the influence of electron- phonon interaction on the electronic and optical spectra [5]. Finally for 2D-TMDs I will show how doping and molecular functionalization can tune their opto-electronic properties [6].
