Electron Dynamics in Materials from First Principles

Calculations of charge transport and ultrafast dynamics have relied on heuristic approaches for the past several decades. Recent progress in combining density functional theory and related methods with kinetic equations are enabling spectacular advances in computing carrier dynamics in materials from first principles. The interaction between charge carriers and lattice vibrations, also known as electron-phonon (e-ph) interaction, plays a central role as it dominates carrier dynamics near room temperature and at low energy.
