First-principles Fröhlich electron-phonon coupling and polarons in oxides and polar semiconductors

Abstract:

The Fröhlich coupling describes the interaction between electrons and infrared-active vibrations at long wavelength in polar semiconductors and insulators, and may result in the formation of polaronic quasiparticles. Polarons are electrons dressed by a phonon cloud, which can strongly affect the electronic properties of the crystal. Despite their ubiquitous role in a broad range of technologies, first-principles investigations of the electron-phonon interaction in polar materials are scarc...
