LDA-1/2 is a novel self-energy correction scheme for semiconductor band structure calculation, developed by
Prof. L. G. Ferreira et al. in 2008. It can efficiently resolve the band gap underestimation problem caused by the
local density approximation (LDA) in density functional theory (DFT).

semiconductors, including bulk and 2D semiconductors. They were developed by Prof. K.-H. Xue et al. in 2018.

GGA-1/2 is similar to LDA-1/2, also developed by Prof. L. G. Ferreira et al. in 2008. Our site affords a series of
self-energy potentials for LDA-1/2 and GGA-1/2, including various exchange-correlation functional (XC) flavors.
