Title: Bulk inversion asymmetry effect on band structure and optical properties of cubic CsSnBr3 perovskite
Since Miyasaka and co-workers open the door of the hybrid organic-inorganic halide perovskite AMX3 (where A is an organic cation, M = Pb, Sn, or Ge, and X = I, Br, or Cl), it has attracted increasing attention from the photovoltaic community. More information about this kind of new material has been revealed through the calculation of the complicated densities functional theory (DFT). Here, we report a new simple 8-band k.p method to calculate the band structure and optical properties of cubic CsSnBr3 perovskite. The bulk inversion asymmetry δz=δxy=500 meV is taken into consideration in our model. The band splitting caused by the bulk inversion asymmetry is observed at non-R point.
