Abstract

The structural parameters, density of states, electronic band structure, charge density, and optical properties of orthorhombic SrBi2Ta2O9 have been investigated using the plane-wave ultrasoft pseudopotential technique based on the first-principle density functional theory (DFT). The calculated structural parameters were in agreement with the previous theoretical and experimental data. The band structure showed an indirect (S to Γ) band gap with 2.071 eV. The chemical bonding along with population analysis has been studied. The complex dielectric function, refractive index, and extinction coefficient were calculated to understand the optical properties of this compound, which showed an optical anisotropy in the components of polarization directions (100), (010), and (001).
