We developed a first-principles theoretical approach to field-effect doping and the method was implemented in the QuantumEspresso package. The method allows for calculation of the electronic structure as well as complete structural relaxation in field-effect configuration using density-functional theory. Up to now, this was computationally expensive and in some case even impossible. Thus, experimentalists were forced to use simplified screening models in order to determine the induced charge from Hall-effect measurements. Yet, it is unknown to what extend this simple models hold in nanolayers systems and what are the changes which are induced by the large local electric fields (in the order of 1 V/nm).
