Electronic excitations in light absorbers for photoelectrochemical energy conversion: first principles calculations based on many body perturbation theory

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe state of the art methods for the calculation of electronic excitations in solids and molecules, based on many body perturbation theory, and we discuss some applications of these methods to the study of band edges and absorption processes in representative materials used as photoelectrodes for water splitting.
