Ginzburg-Landau-Langevin theory for the phase transition in In/Si(111) — •Yasemin Ergün and Eric Jeckelmann — Appelstraße 2, 30167 Hannover
We investigate thermal fluctuations and collective excitations in quasi-one-dimensional charge-density-wave systems using the Ginzburg-Landau (GL) theory. Starting from a microscopic Su-Schrieffer-Heeger-like model for In/Si(111), we generalized the GL theory for grand canonical Peierls transitions. The equilibrium properties and the non-equilibrium dynamics are simulated using the Langevin approach. We calculated the phonon spectrum for the Landau-Langevin theory. We discuss our theoretical results in relation to doping and spectroscopy experiments for In/Si(111). Extending this approach for local fluctuations within a two-dimensional Ginzburg-Landau-Langevin is computationally expensive. We developed a frequency filter for smoothing fluctuations included in the linear response spectrum by finite simulation size and time.
