Post On the electrnonic life time and el-ph coupling
Dear all,

1- I am in the process of calculating the electronic lifetime (tau) and electron phonon coupling (lambda) for a 2D structure of the form MX2. I am using the electronic k grid crated by EPW (238 points) and converging (tau) w.r.t the q points moving from a qf grif of 30x30x1 to 40x40x1....etc. Since I need one single constant value of (tau), I am calculating the average of tau_{nk} = hbar/ (2 Im \Sigma_{nk}). Tha value I am obtaining is very small something like 3.68471 $\times 10^{-24}$ seconds, which i guess is too small. Is this value reasonale?

2- When calculating both $\lambda$ and $\lambda_{tr}$ for this structure , I am getting 0! The structure is a semi conductor with bandgap ~ 1.5 eV. It makes sense to get small value of $\lambda$ but exactly zero was a bit surprising:

Eliashberg Spectral Function in the Migdal Approximation

lambda : 0.0000000
lambda_tr : 0.0000000

Again, is this reasonable?

Any help or advice would be highly appreciated
