We present first-principles calculations for the optical properties of germanium dioxide in the rutile structure. The electronic band structure has been calculated self-consistently within the local density approximation using the full-potential linearized augmented plane wave method. The electronic band structure shows that the fundamental energy gap is direct at the center of the Brillouin...

A theoretical study of the structural, electronic and optical properties of KMgF₃ is presented using the full-potential linearized augmented plane wave method (FP-LAPW). In this approach, the local density approximation was used for the exchange-correlation potentials. First, we present the main features of the structural and electronic properties of this compound, where the electronic band...
