Task

Calculation of the DOS of a CO molecule (using p4vasp)

Input

POSCAR

CO molecule in a box
 1.0          ! universal scaling parameters
 8.0 0.0 0.0  ! lattice vector  a(1)
 0.0 8.0 0.0  ! lattice vector  a(2)
 0.0 0.0 8.0  ! lattice vector  a(3)
1 1           ! number of atoms for each species
sel           ! selective degrees of freedom are changed
cart          ! positions in cartesian coordinates
 0 0 0       F F T  ! first atom
 0 0 1.143   F F T  ! second atom

INCAR

SYSTEM = CO molecule in a box
ISMEAR = 0   ! Gaussian smearing
LORBIT = 11

KPOINTS

Gamma-point only
 0
Monkhorst Pack
 1 1 1
 0 0 0

Calculation

  • The PROCAR file gives valuable information of the character of the one electron states:
LORBIT=10 DOSCAR and l decomposed PROCAR file
LORBIT=11 DOSCAR and lm decomposed PROCAR file
  • We'll use LORBIT=11 and see if we can distinguish and states.
