Title: Band-gap tuning and optical response of two-dimensional Si x C 1 - x : A first-principles real-space study of disordered two-dimensional materials

Abstract

We present a real-space formulation for calculating the electronic structure and optical conductivity of random alloys based on Kubo-Greenwood formalism interfaced with augmented space recursion technique formulated with the tight-binding linear muffin-tin orbital basis with the van Leeuwen–Baerends corrected exchange potential. This approach has been used to quantitatively analyze the effect of chemical disorder on the configuration averaged electronic properties and optical response of two-dimensional honeycomb siliphene Si xC 1–x beyond the usual Dirac-cone approximation. We predicted the quantitative effect of disorder on both the electronic structure and optical response over a wide energy range, and the results are discussed in the light of the available experimental and other theoretical data. As a result, our proposed formalism may open up a facile way for planned band-gap engineering in optoelectronic applications.
