An Auger-Meitner recombination, which is a non-radiative recombination process important in semiconductors.

Using first-principles calculations, you can see the distribution of participating quasiparticles (electrons, holes, phonons) in the system.

These images are cross sections from calculations in silicon and reveal the electronic and vibrational structure of the Auger-Meitner recombination process.
