Excitations at Interfaces: Insight from Many-Body Theory
Interfaces are very exciting since one can expect to see new properties that are absent in either of their building blocks. They open new perspectives towards the design and tailoring of materials with desired features and functions. A prerequisite for real progress is, however, the in-depth understanding of what happens on the atomic and electronic scale. In this respect, interfaces and, in particular, organic/inorganic hybrid materials pose a challenge for electronic-structure theory.
Based on selected examples I’ll discuss our recent progress in understanding level alignment and light-matter interaction of molecules adsorbed on surfaces and at interfaces between 2D materials.
