Electronic Structure and Core-Level Spectroscopy of Light Actinide Dioxides — •Jindrich Kolorenc — Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague, Czech Republic

The correlated band theory implemented as a combination of the local density approximation with the dynamical mean-field theory (LDA+DMFT) is applied to UO2, NpO2, and PuO2 [1]. The calculated band gaps and valence-band spectra are in very good agreement with optical absorption measurements and with experimental photoemission spectra. The relatively large hybridization of the actinide 5f shell with the p states of oxygen causes a sizable increase of the filling of the 5f orbitals from the nominal ionic configurations with 2, 3, and 4 electrons to fractional values 2.5, 3.4, and 4.4. This enhancement is compatible with the 4f core-level photoemission spectra [2] but in the same time it appears to disagree with the recent synchrotron experiments employing the resonant x-ray emission spectroscopy (RXES) [3,4]. The discrepancy will be analyzed in the LDA+DMFT framework.
