  • The high-symmetry pseudocubic init cell is often used for modelling the electronic structure of halide perovskites. However, direct comparison of the band structure with more realistic low-symmetry phases is impeded by the zone folding. We utilize a spectral density technique in order to reduce the supercell band structure to a common Bloch basis. This allows us to compare the electronic structure of high- and low-symmetry phases as well as investigate effects of structural and compositional disorder on states near to the band edges that govern transport, dissociation and recombination of optical excitations.
