Clark, S.J. and Robertson, J. and Lany, S. and Zunger, A. (2010) 'Intrinsic defects in ZnO calculated by screened exchange and hybrid density functionals.', Physical review B., 81 (11). p. 115311.
The formation energies of intrinsic defects in ZnO are calculated by a family of screened exchange and hybrid density functionals, which include different fractions of Fock exchange and range separation in the hybrids. All functionals improve on local-density methods and agree remarkably well for formation energies of neutral vacancies but show significant variations for the energy of charge transition levels in the gap. This result highlights that a correct prediction of the band gap by a functional does not guarantee a high accuracy for the defect levels. Hybrid functionals obtain the correct localization of trapped hole states at the Zn vacancy.
