Dielectric Screening

The dielectric matrix of Disilane (Si2H6) is computed in WEST by iterative diagonalization, see Fig. 2 of Ref. [02]. The eigenvalues of the symmetrized irreducible polarizability for Disilane (Si2H6) are reported in Fig. 1. Results were obtained using the program wstat.x of the WEST package.

Spectral Function

The G0W0 spectral function of Disilane (Si2H6) is computed in WEST with full frequency integration. Results were obtained using the program wfreq.x of the WEST package.
