Abstract:

A procedure has been developed for studying the effects of electronic correlation on the band structures of narrow band materials. This procedure is being applied to TiO, FeO and NiO. The procedure will also be useful for studying the plasmon structure in the presence of a strong lattice potential and the response of electrons in the material to an optical or electronic probe. The experimental electronic loss structures for bulk and oxidized transition metals is analyzed in terms of this model. The effects on superconductivity of the dynamical response of electrons and especially coupling via plasmons or excitons is being studied for Cu2O. It is shown that there may be a connection between experiments on copper oxides which show nearly complete shielding of electric fields and experiments which show excitons in the oxide may obey Bose-Einstein statistics. More careful calculations for this and other transition metal oxides are discussed. Author
