Title: Large-scale local-density-approximation band gap corrected GaAsN calculations

Large-scale local-density-approximation band gap corrected GaAsN calculations A novel method is used to calculate the electronic structure of GaAsN alloy. The charge density of a thousand atom supercell is generated by patching the charge density of a small unit cell with the charge density of bulk GaAs. The LDA band gap error is corrected by modifying the nonlocal pseudopotentials. A localized nitrogen state [a{sub 1}(N)] is obtained for the first time through an ab initio quality calculation. We found that it plays an important role in the band gap reduction of GaAsN.
