      The diagram on the front cover illustrates the calculation of the self-energy in Hedin's GW approximation using a basis of dominant products. Such a basis is useful in conjunction with the LCAO ansatz for molecular orbitals. It notably simplifies the calculation of properties of excited states in TDDFT (time-dependent density functional theory), GW and presumably also in BSE (Bethe–Salpeter equation approach). For example, the fourcenter Coulomb integrals do not arise in this formalism. The Feature Article by Koval, Foerster and Coulaud (pp. 1841–1848) demonstrates the usage of the dominant product basis in TDDFT done with the full Kohn–Sham response matrix.

      Version of Record online: 19 JUL 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201090016

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The inside back cover of this issue shows some structural characteristics of pyramidal site-controlled quantum dots grown in a high purity reactor of a new metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy system installed at Tyndall National Institute, Ireland. Relevant details regarding pre and postgrowth processing, formation of the dot structure and photoluminescence properties are reported by Dimastrodonato, Mereni, Young and Pelucchi in their article on pp. 1862–1868.

    1. Front Cover (Phys. Status Solidi B 8/2010)

      Benjamin Buick, Eugen Speiser, Paola Prete, Pasquale Paiano, Nicola Lovergine and Wolfgang Richter

      Version of Record online: 19 JUL 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201090017

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The illustration on the back cover of this issue refers to the Editor's Choice article by Buick et al. on pp. 2027–2032. The authors discuss scanning confocal Raman spectroscopy on single as-grown AlGaAs nanowires. The free-standing nanowires were grown by Au-catalyzed metal organic vapor phase epitaxy on (111)B-GaAs substrates. The illustration shows a 3D representation of the total scattered intensity (Rayleigh micrograph) of an array of said nanowires. It allows to locate and select an individual nanowire for spectroscopic analysis. The authors show how the stoichiometry of single nanowires can be evaluated from the acquired Raman spectra with an accuracy below 10%. Measurements at different positions along the nanowire reveal variations of the stoichiometry. This non-uniformity indicates a growth related internal structure of the nanowires.
