Effect of hydrostatic pressure on optical properties of TlBr and TlCl

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present first principles calculations of optical properties of binary semiconductor compounds TlBr and TlCl. Dependences of dielectric function, reflectivity and refractive index on hydrostatic pressure are calculated using self-consistent scalar relativistic full potential linear augmented plane wave method (FP-LAPW) within a generalized gradient approximation (GGA). They are compared with previous calculations and experimental measurements. Good agreements are found.
