    • Abstract


      The electronic structure of bulk and slab PbTiO$_3$ perovskite crystal for different layers are investigated using extended-tight binding calculations (GFN1-xTB) with self-consistent charge calculations based on density functional theory. The band structure is calculated for bulk PbTiO$_3$, and the bandgap is determined as 4.3 eV which is in good agreement with experimental data. The bandgaps of slab PbTiO$_3$ for (001) surfaces with five layers from n = 2 to n = 6 are calculated as 2.35, 2.49, 2.65, 2.77 and 2.83 eV, respectively. These results are compared with previous quantum mechanics calculations. Also, the total and partial density of states for five layers with (001) surface and the surface formation energies of slab PbTiO$_3$ are discussed.
