Is it possible to calculate phonon assisted optical properties in metal

You can find here problems arising when using old releases of Yambo (< 5.0). Issues as parallelization strategy, performance issues and other technical aspects.

Is it possible to calculate phonon assisted optical properties in metal

Post by jasonhan0710 » Sat Dec 04, 2021 11:05 am

Dear Yambo Developers,

Is it possible to calculate phonon assisted optical properties in metal? It is impossible to calculate dielectric functions for metal with QE. The dvscf reports

Code: Select all

 %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
     Error in routine phq_readin (1):
     no elec. field with metals
 %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

     stopping ...
Can we set "epsil=.false." in the dvscf calculation?

Thank you.

Best,
Jason
