31 Fig. 37 Band structure of trigonal Se II. Band Structure of Trigonal Se The band structure of the model trigonal Se has been calculated self-consistently by WIEN2k using the mBJ potential. The Brillouin zone of trigonal Se is illustrated in Fig. 36. The center of the Brillouin zone is at the Gamma point of the zone. The band structure of trigonal Se is shown in Fig. 37. Density functional calculations with mBJ potential widen the band gap in comparison to the Density functional theory with Generalized Gradient Approximation, as discussed in Chap.
