Improved Density Dependent Correction for the Description of London Dispersion Forces

Abstract : The Tkatchenko-Scheffler method for calculating dispersion correction to standard density-functional theory, which uses fixed neutral atoms as a reference to estimate the effective volumes of atoms-in-molecule and to calibrate their polarizabilities and dispersion coefficients, fails to describe the structure and the energetics of ionic solids. Here, we propose a more appropriate partitioning, based on the iterative Hirshfeld scheme, where the fractionally charged atomic reference state is determined self-consistently. We show that our new method extends the applicability of the original method in particular to study ionic systems and adsorption phenomena on surfaces of ionic solids.
