Hello everyone

I need to calculate with virtual nanolab the bandstructure of bismuth telluride. I want to obtein the follow resoult or obtain the bandstructure to calculate the band gap.


The Band structure of Bi2Te3 is:
Bi2Te3.png


In virtual nanolab, with Hexagonal (and other) simmetry there aren't the F and U zone of brillouin...
Are they called in another way?

If nobody know virtual nanolab can say me how to obtain the bandstructure to visualize the bandgap?? Which brillouin zone i must plot? Has got the bismuthtelluride an hexagonal simmetry?


Here the .cif file of Bismuth telluride:

A few "etiquette" issues with your post:

1. Do not do multiple posts (read the PF rules).

2. When you are using data, results, or codes from other sources, you must provide adequate references references to them. This not only helps us to double check the sources, but it is also an ETHICAL thing to do. Otherwise, you are just "copying" stuff without giving credit to where you got this from. You need to learn how to do that anyway as you progress in your education, so might as well learn it now.

3. What exactly do you know? In this case, it appears that you simply copied someone's code. Do you even know the coordination number for this Bi-Te compound? What technique are you using to calculate this band structure? DFT? You gave no indication if you know how to do these things.
