output file of BSE

Deals with issues related to computation of optical spectra, in RPA (-o c) or by solving the Bethe-Salpeter equation (-o b). Includes local field effects, excitons, etc.

Dear Haseeb Ahmad,
the output file is there and it is named o.eps_q1_haydock_bse which is the default name unless you rename your run using the -J option.
Actually, you cannot plot the spectra as it does not contains any data. This happens because in your input you have

Code: Select all

BEnSteps=0                     # [BSS] Energy steps
This variable indicates how many energy steps you want in the energy range given by BEnRange.
If you will assign a number different from 0 (e.g. 100) to BEnSteps you will have your spectrum.

In order to get familiar with Yambo I strongly suggest you follow the yambo tutorials you can find here (both GW and BSE runs):
