Finite-Field Approach to Solving the Bethe-Salpeter Equation.

Summary of "Finite-Field Approach to Solving the Bethe-Salpeter Equation."

We present a method to compute optical spectra and exciton binding energies of molecules and solids based on the solution of the Bethe-Salpeter equation and the calculation of the screened Coulomb interaction in a finite field. The method does not require either the explicit evaluation of dielectric matrices or of virtual electronic states, and can be easily applied without resorting to the random phase approximation. In addition, it utilizes localized orbitals obtained from Bloch states using bisection techniques, thus greatly reducing the complexity of the calculation and enabling the efficient use of hybrid functionals to obtain single particle wave functions. We report exciton binding energies of several molecules and absorption spectra of condensed systems of unprecedented size, including water and ice samples with hundreds of atoms.
