Dear Yambo developers

I would like to know if it is possible to calculate shift current with yambo_nl?

with best regards

Dear Javad

in principle it is possible to calculate shift current with Yambo_nl, as fas as I know some people are doing it in Belfast.
You have to turn on the flag EvalCurrent and then you have to post-process the current in the same way it is done for the polarization.
I advice you to modify yambopy to do it
