Electron-magnon scattering in elementary ferromagnets from first principles: implementation and results — •Christoph Friedrich, Mathias C.T.D. Müller, and Stefan Blügel — Peter Grünberg Institut and Institute of Advanced Simulation, Forschungszentrum Jülich and JARA, 52425 Jülich, Germany
Propagating electrons and holes can scatter with spin fluctuations and form quasiparticles as a result or more complex many-body states. To calculate this effect, a k-dependent self-energy describing the scattering of electrons and magnons is constructed from the solution of a Bethe-Salpeter equation for the T matrix. Partial self-consistency is achieved by the alignment of the chemical potentials. We discuss details of the implementation and illustrative results. The renormalized electronic band structures exhibit strong spin-dependent lifetime effects close to the Fermi energy, which are strongest in Fe. The renormalization gives rise to a band anomaly at large binding energies in iron, which results from a coupling of the quasihole with Stoner excitations.
