Comparison of GW band structure to semiempirical approach for an FeSe monolayer


We present the G0W0 band structure, core levels, and deformation potential of monolayer FeSe in the paramagnetic phase based on a starting mean field of the Kohn-Sham density functional theory (DFT) with the Perdew, Burke, and Ernzerhof functional. We find the GW correction increases the bandwidth of the states forming the M pocket near the Fermi energy, while leaving the Γ pocket roughly unchanged. We then compare the G0W0 quasiparticle band energies with the band structure from a simple empirical +A approach, which was recently proposed to capture the renormalization of the electron-phonon interaction going beyond DFT in FeSe, when used as a starting point in density functional perturbation theory. We show that this empirical correction succeeds in approximating the GW nonlocal and dynamical self-energy in monolayer FeSe and reproduces the GW band structure near the Fermi surface, the core energy levels, and the deformation potential (electron-phonon coupling).
