- TL;DR Summary
- I'm looking for the spin-orbit splitting parameters of certain semiconductors at T = 0 K and their dependance on temperature.

I'm simulating on code the tight-binding sp3s* bandstructure of certain semiconductors, such as GaAs, AlP, InP, ZnSe, etc. with spin-orbit coupling at a temperature of T = 0 K but I'm having trouble at finding the corresponding spin-orbit splitting parameters.

For example, I've found in this article by

But the temperature is not said anywhere in that article. In fact, the tight binding parameters without spin-orbit coupling depend a lot on the temperature. At this point, the only information that is certain for me is the following:

1) At T = 300 K the desired parameters appear in this article by

2) At T = 0 K I know from chapter 5 of Supriro Datta's Quantum Transport, Atom to Transistor that the spin-orbit parameters, only for GaAs are D_a = 0.37 eV for Arsenic and D_c = 0.013 eV for Gallium. The other semiconductors are not mentioned.

Based on what I've said above, do you know where I could find the spin-orbit splitting parameters for the semiconductors on Table 4 at T = 0 K, and if it were possible their dependance with the temperature? Any references will be appreciated.

Thank you very much!
