Title: A method for the calculation of excitonic effects in certain metals
Author(s): Groh, David John
Doctoral Committee Chair(s): Kunz, A. B.
Department / Program: Physics
Discipline: Physics
Degree: Ph.D.
Genre: Dissertation
Subject(s): excitonic effects long-range screening behavior of electrons electron-hole interaction metals
Abstract: Due to the long-range screening behavior of electrons in metals, interactions between excited electrons and their corresponding holes are few and are generally ignored. In this thesis, we attempt to include this electron-hole interaction into the calculation by randomly choosing a finite number of electrons to represent the hole and calculating the response of these chosen electrons to the excited electron. Calculations were done for lithium, sodium, potassium, calcium and aluminum.
