Parallelization of the R-matrix propagation method for the study of intense-laser-driven semiconductor superlattices. (English) Zbl 1264.82158
Summary: The parallelization of the R-matrix propagation method for the study of intense-laser-driven semiconductor superlattices is described. We focus on photo-dressed excitonic electron-hole pair states related to the optical properties of the system concerned. Here, we parallelize the loop of propagation sectors, which is regarded as a rate-determining step in the whole calculation: in each sector calculated, the R-matrix Green functions are playing a key role. The evaluated parallelization efficiency is found to besufficiently high, compared with a conventional algorithm without such parallelization. Restriction of this efficiency arising from the inter-core communications is also discussed. Further, it is shown that by virtue of the present parallelization, we readily obtain high-resolution excitonic absorption spectra revealing a conspicuous dynamic Fano resonance.
