Lecture I: Real Time TDDFT: Basics and Applications
Lecture II. Ab-initio Simulations for Attosecond Spectroscopy in Solids
Time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is an extension of the well-known DFT and can describe electron dynamics in molecules, nano-structures, and solids induced by optical electric fields. We have been developing a computational method to describe electron dynamics in molecules and crystalline solids by solving the time-dependent Kohn-Sham equation in real time . I will give two seminars, in the first part of my seminar, I will talk on basic and historical aspects of the method and its applications. In the second part, I will talk on our recent applications of the real-time TDDFT to atto-second spectroscopies in crystalline solids. We have developed an ab-initio scheme coupling the real-time TDDFT with the macroscopic Maxwell equations in a multiscale implementation . The method can describe propagations of ultrashort laser pulses in dielectrics and, in particular, the energy transfer from the pulsed light to electrons in dielectrics without any empirical parameters. We apply the method to analyze recent experiments employing attosecond spectroscopy methods [3,4].
