Nanocrystal atomic configuration for different molar fractions. The atomic species H, Si, and Ge are represented in white, yellow, and green, respectively. Their respective LUMO and HOMO orbitals integrated in the coordinate are also shown.
Average bond lengths (in angstroms) for different molar fractions of a NC 1.4 nm in diameter.
Molar fraction dependence of the quasiparticle (, solid diamonds) and HOMO-LUMO (, solid circles) gaps and the self-energy interation (, solid squares). For the sake of comparison, the LDA results of Melnikov et al. are displayed with open symbols (Ref. 19). The GW-corrected HOMO-LUMO gaps of Yu et al. are represented by crosses (Ref. 39).
Molar fraction -dependence of the exciton energy for NCs 1.4 nm in diameter with (solid circles) and without (solid squares) the contribution of . For comparison, we also display PEM energies (open and solid stars, Ref. 38), the scaled PL data of Takeoka et al. (solid diamonds, Refs. 6 and 17), and the GW-corrected HOMO-LUMO gaps of Yu et al. (crosses, Ref. 39).
(a) Molar fraction dependence of the exciton binding energy of the NCs 1.4 nm in diameter. The inset shows the exciton exchange energy (solid diamonds), as compared with those by Weissker et al. (open diamonds, Ref. 24) and Reboredo et al. (cross diamonds, Ref. 29). (b) Molar fraction dependence of the wave function dispersion of the LUMO (solid circles) and HOMO (open circles) orbitals.
The molar fraction -dependence of the radiative recombination lifetime of NCs 1.4 nm in diameter (solid squares). All values are normalized with respect to the case where . For comparison, we also display the normalized radiative lifetimes of Takeoka et al.(Ref. 17, solid diamonds), Weissker et al. (Ref. 38, open and solid stars), and Yu et al. (crosses, Ref. 39).
