  • X-ray photoemission spectra generally exhibit satellite features in addition to quasi-particle peaks due to many-body excitations which have been of considerable theoretical and experimental interest. However, the satellites attributed to charge-transfer (CT) excitations in correlated materials have proved difficult to calculate from first principles. Here we report a real-time, real-space approach for such calculations based on a cumulant representation of the core-hole Green’s function and time-dependent density functional theory. This approach also yields an interpretation of CT satellites in terms of a complex oscillatory, transient response to a suddenly created core hole. Illustrative results for TiO2 and NiO are inmore » good agreement with experiment.« less
  • A method is presented which allows charged particle spectra from thick targets to I be corrected for energy and particle losses in the target. The method is applied to the inclusive reactions {sup 28}Si(n,x He) and {sup 28}Si(n,x p) at 50 and 32 MeV. Monte Carlo simulations are used to test the validity and explore the limitations of the method. This work is to targets thicker by a factor of 20.
  • A quasiclassical formula for inelastic energy losses in collisions of slow ions and atoms has been derived. The electronic stopping power is assumed to be due to a momentum transfer during scattering of the target atom's electrons in the screened Coulomb field of the projectile and vice versa. The Coulomb repulsion between the nuclei of colliding particles is shown to decrease greatly the electronic stopping in the limiting case of small, reduced energies, [ital E][much lt]1. This leads to inelastic energy losses being no longer linearly dependent on the particle velocity, as predicted by the linear-response theory. The latter effectmore » explains the experimentally observed strong dependence of the kinetic electron emission well below the threshold on the energy of ions bombarding a solid surface. At relatively large energies ([ital E][gt]1) the expression obtained reduces to the result found earlier by Lindhard and Scharff [Phys. Rev. 124, 128 (1961)]. The total energy losses of slow atoms calculated on the basis of the formula derived for the inelastic stopping power and the expression for the elastic energy losses available in the literature are in good agreement with the experimental data.« less
