Abstract

Density Functional Theory calculations of electronic and optical properties of NiO, with and without O vacancies, are the focus of this work. Two bands, one fully occupied and the other unoccupied, induced by an O vacancy, are found in the gap. These energy levels are identified and analyzed by means of a local density of states (LDOS) calculation, and notable crystal field splitting can be seen. The real and imaginary parts of the dielectric function are calculated, and an additional optical transition can be seen at lower energy, which can be attributed to the O vacancy induced state in the band gap.
