Abstract

Hybrid eigenvector-following (EF) using variational eigenvector refinement and tangent space minimisation are combined with plane-wave density-functional calculations to characterise rearrangements of C10H10 and a variety of defect migration processes in crystalline silicon. For silicon we compare local and ‘non-local' density functionals and supercells containing 64±1 and 216±1 atoms. Changes in the supercell size and the density functional can produce significant changes in the mechanisms.
