abstract

  • In this paper we present calculations of single-particle excitation spectra of neutral and three-electron-doped Hubbard C$_{60}$ molecules and monolayers from large-scale quantum Monte Carlo simulations and cluster perturbation theory. By a comparison to experimental photoemission, inverse photoemission, and angle-resolved photoemission data, we estimate the intermolecular hopping integrals and the C$_{60}$ molecular orientation angle, finding agreement with recent X-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPD) experiments. Our results demonstrate that a simple effective Hubbard model, with intermediate coupling, $U=4t$, provides a reasonable basis for modeling the properties of C$_{60}$ compounds.
