Question concerning oscillator strentgh

Post by martinspenke » Sun Apr 20, 2014 10:28 pm

Dear Daniele,

if i want to calculate y-component of oscillator strength i have in my 06_BSE this keyword :

Code: Select all

% BLongDir
 0.000000 | 1.000000 | 0.000000 |        # [BSS] [cc] Electric Field
%
but i also have this keyword in the input files of 03_real_axis and 05_W, too.
Now should i also have the same 0 1 0 in 03_real_axis and 05_W input files, too
or can i say, i let BLongDir in 03_real_axis and 05_W be 1 0 0 and calculate BSE in my 06_BSE with 0 1 0 configuration ???

Dear martin
The q limit in the absorption is determined in the bse part. You do not need to change the q limit in the screening and gw which affect the dielectric matrix which usually does not play an important role unless you have an highly anysotropic system.

Dear Daniele,

What is the unit of the oscillator strength in yambo?

Dear Martin,
I think that the units are arbitrary. The absorption it is calculated as Im(\epsilon_m).
