Title: First-Principles Study of Pressure Dependence of Optical Spectra of MnS

Abstract

MnS is a semiconductor material that can be used in solar cell coatings as window/buffer material and in many other applications. The present contribution deals with the optical properties of MnS in the zinc-blende structure using ab initio calculations within the generalized gradient approximation. Features such as dielectric function, refractive index, reflectivity, optical absorption, conductivity, and electron loss function spectra have been reported and their pressure dependence has been examined and discussed. The information gathered from the present study can be useful for photovoltaic applications.
