Nature of problem:
We describe the Fortran-90 program BEEM v2.1 for the computation of real and reciprocal space currents in Ballistic Electron Emission Microscopy (BEEM), and Spectroscopy (BEES) [1-4].
Based on a LCAO Hamiltonian, the equilibrium one-particle Green's Functions of a semi-infinite crystal are obtained using a decimation technique. By means of Keldysh's formalism, the STM tip is coupled to this crystal, and expressions for BEEM currents in real and reciprocal space are obtained. Finally, a Dyson-like equation and a self-consistent charge neutrality condition are applied to incorporate reconstructed or relaxed layers in the surface region.
The test run took about 1 hr for Au and about 6 hrs for CoSi2 (once the decimation is stored, the run takes around 0.5-0.6 hrs for both Au and CoSi2).
