Re: [Wien] Band structure sensitivity to RMT reduction

2019-11-06 Thread Oleg Rubel

Dear All,

thank you for the comments and suggestions. It was a silly mistake on 
our end + rigid instructions in the tutorial I made:


1) The structure referred to as "no RMT reduction" was not 0% reduction 
at all (as Peter guessed). It was initialized with

init_lapw -b -vxc 13 -rkmax 7 -numk 300
instead of the tutorial recommendation
init_lapw -b -vxc 13 -red 3 -rkmax 7 -numk 300
leading to R(Ta)=R(As)=2 bohr. There is in fact a lot of interstitial 
space between MT radii and still no core leakage.


2) Because of significantly smaller RMTs compared to the tutorial, the 
Kmax also changed significantly causing a large change in the Fermi 
energy. The resultant Fermi energy becomes 0.917 Ry vs 0.801 Ry in the 
tutorial. Since the band structure is plotted within a narrow energy 
window +/- 1 eV, we saw the adjacent low-energy part of the same band 
structure.


Thank you all for the help once again!

Best regards
Oleg

Dear Oleg,

Using RMTs of 2.5 /2.38 (this is what setrmt gives without any

Maybe you did not execute setrmt at all and have RMT=2.0 ??  Then the SO 
effect would only be taken partly into account.

instance, with NiO (for instance) if too large an RMT is used for the 
Ni the O 2p states can leak into the Ni RMT which can lead to 
anomalies with +U or -eece.

Re: [Wien] Band structure sensitivity to RMT reduction

2019-11-05 Thread Laurence Marks
Leakage was a confusing term as it can be confused with core leakage out of
the RMT, which is not what I meant. What I meant is leakage of the valence
states from, in your case, As into the RMT of Ta. For certain with +U/-eece
one has to pay attention to this, I am not sure about with SOC.

N.B. this point comes from Peter originally, due credit being paid.

Re: [Wien] Band structure sensitivity to RMT reduction

2019-11-05 Thread Fecher, Gerhard
Hello Oleg
Did you use W2Web to reduce the RMT they should be 2.5000 and 2.3800 (Ta, As) 
without reduction 
and the nearest neighbor distance should then be 4.91549 which is 0.03549 
larger than the sum of the RMTs thus they are not touching spheres.

I can't use your k-path for the bands as I start the calculation from home 
using an iPad and that doesn't come with xcrysden
I do not see much difference in the band structure when using the bcc path 
suggested by W2Web
with SO shows only the expected band splittings compared to the calculation 
without.
(Indeed when reducing rMT by 3 % (2.43 2.31) then the Fermi energy changes, but 
the bandstructure seems to be rather the same)

Note I used batch initialisation with 100 k points and everything else default
Energy window in case.inso -12.0  2.5
SO at all atoms.

Finally: I use Wien2k 19.1

with NiO (for instance) if too large an RMT is used for the Ni the O 2p

As far as I understand, the wave function is continuous in the value

Re: [Wien] Band structure sensitivity to RMT reduction

2019-11-05 Thread Laurence Marks
Remember, SOC is only within the RMTs, see
http://www.wien2k.at/events/ws2017/notes/Rocquefelte-Relativity-NCM.pdf

N.B., if the RMTs are too large you may also have leakage. For instance,
with NiO (for instance) if too large an RMT is used for the Ni the O 2p
states can leak into the Ni RMT which can lead to anomalies with +U or
-eece.

The basic problem is: you are evaluating the DOS (semiconducting or 
metallic) only based on the graphics.


Look into case.outputtup/dn files. You will see that the DOS is just 
very small but clearly non-zero.


There is no contradiction between DOS and bands and the literature is wrong.

Dear Fabien Tran,

I was wrongly in digested mode, so  I couldn`t answer your
questions. Now, I turned as non-digested mode.

I use normally (20X20X20) 8000 k-mesh, I increased it up to
64000, the result has no changed.

I noticed that my first e-mail was wrong. For spin down
channels, both (the bandstructure and the dos) give same (metallic)
result. This result is consistent with the literature.

For spin up channel, the bandstructure is metallic and the dos
is semiconducting. The literature claims that the material is
semiconducting for spin-up channel.

According to these results, I`m wrong for bandstructure
calculations but I know that I`m not wrong for bandstructure
calculations. So if it is possible, could you check it?

I can send you my struct file and my regular scf result.

Best Regards,

Dear Fabien Tran,

I was wrongly in digested mode, so  I couldn`t answer your questions. Now, I 
turned as non-digested mode.

I use normally (20X20X20) 8000 k-mesh, I increased it up to 64000, the result 
has no changed.

I noticed that my first e-mail was wrong. For spin down channels, both (the 
bandstructure and the dos) give same (metallic)
result. This result is consistent with the literature.

For spin up channel, the bandstructure is metallic and the dos is 
semiconducting. The literature claims that the material is
semiconducting for spin-up channel.

According to these results, I`m wrong for bandstructure calculations but I know 
that I`m not wrong for bandstructure
calculations. So if it is possible, could you check it?

I can send you my struct file and my regular scf result.

Best Regards,

Bandstructure tells that it is metallic, dos tells that it is semiconducting.

Re: [Wien] band structure in semiconductors

Are you calculating Density of States (DOS) or bands.

In DOS the k-points are widened to give a smooth curve, so Ef is surpassed by a 
little DOS tail.

In the bands Ef should be touching the upper edge of the band.

Look at the sequence of programs in case.dayfile (or in :log).
When calculating a spin-polarized bandstructure with so you have to keep 
the sequence of the lapw1/lapwso steps:


x lapw1 -band -up   # without -orb, this will be added in the so step
x lapw1 -band -dn

x lapwso -up -orb   # here one adds -orb (but you don't need -band)

x spaghetti -up -so   # and note: the bands show both, spin-up AND dn

Dear Dr. Blaha,
Thank you very much.
This issue about 'so' and 'up and dn' is confusing.

And as I asked before about plasma frequency;
The plasma frequency is connected with electrical conductivity;

 (plasma frequency)**2 = const*electrical conductivity

so, if one has a system with strong up/dn difference how one can calculate the 
up and dn plasma frequency separately? Would it be possible?

Re: [Wien] band structure dependence on symmetry and complex calculation

2013-06-29 Thread venkatesh chandragiri
Dear Xavier and Blaha,


thanks for your reply. Yes, a dense quantity of bands is also seen in
the primitive structure of Fe2VAl which has around 16 atoms. As Peter
Blaha suggested, back folding of bands is only the reason due to large
unit cell in the primitive case.


Now, i want to remove this back folding of bands. Because it creates
confuse when comparing the band structures while doping. Is it
possible to remove the back folding by modifying the k-path or by any
other means...? If yes, can you please help to do that...


Please, have a look into this article PHYSICAL REVIEW B 78, 165117
(2008). Here, i am providing a good example where the authors of
this article have worked on the same structure with doping of Nb in
place of V-atom and compare all band structures with doping effect.
Although, they made 2x2x2 super cell from the space group (225), the
bands are looks in indirect way at gamma and X point which is opposite
to my observation. Does you have any idea, what they might did to
avoid the band folding effects.


Looking forward to your valuable suggestions...

Re: [Wien] band structure dependence on symmetry and complex calculation

2013-06-28 Thread Rocquefelte
I have the feeling that your problem is related to the Bravais lattice 
which is F-centered and Primitive in the first and second cases.
It is not related to the way the calculation is done (complex or not). 
Indeed, when you are using the space group Foum-3m, WIEN2k is doing the 
calculation in the related primitive cell which is 4-times smaller than 
the F-centered one.
In constrast when you are doing the calculation with the initial 
structure but keeping the P1 symmetry, WIEN2k do the calculation for the 
full-cell. Thus in the reciprocal space the directions will be different 
and thus the path.


On the other hand, could you provide the 2 structures to check that you 
didn't forget atoms in the case of the P1 symmetry calculation.


Best Regards

Xavier

Dear wein2k users,

I have calculated the band structure of the Fe2VAl lattice (fm3m, 225) 
for the two cases.


*case one* : using the space group (225) defined structure with three 
atoms.


*case two* : by seeing the structure of Fe2VAl in xcrysden, i have 
generated the case.struct file with 16 atomic unit cell (8-Fe, 4-V, 
4-Al) with a 16 number of co-ordinates such that the structure looks 
same as in *case one*. But, in this structure file, i have used space 
group as a primitive (1).


Using the Powder cell software, i also checked the XRD of the 
structures from the both cases and similar diffraction pattern were 
found. I run the volume optimization and min positions before running 
the spin polarized SCF calculation. However, In the First case (space 
group structure), we run the calculation without complex (no 
inversion). But, in the second case (primitive), we did the 
calculations with keeping complex ON.


Now, i done the spaghetti plots for these two structures. For the 
space group case, we have observed indirect band picture between gamma 
and X k-points (X point will always followed by gamma). This nature is 
already reported in the literature also. But, for the second case with 
primitive structure, i have found the direct band like picture in 
which both band are touching at the gamma point.


In preparing the case.klist and case.klist_band, i have used similar 
k-point co-ordinates for the both cases.


Why the bands above the Fermi level would not shift to x point in the 
primitive case. Is there any effect of removing the symmetry on the 
band structure even though we did calculations on the similar 
structure...?


or else in the first case, calculations did with complex OFF while in 
the second case with complex ON. Is this difference will change the 
band structure nature...?


I could not attach the obtained figures, because i sent same mail with 
figures in few days before but it is not published in wien2k mailing 
list due to limitations in the mail content size.


thanks in advance and waiting for your replies.

Re: [Wien] band structure dependence on symmetry and complex calculation

2013-06-28 Thread Peter Blaha

This is related to what is called backfolding.

Remeber basic solid state theory:

A direct lattice with lattice constant a, has a reciprocal lattice with  b=2pi/a

Now double the direct lattice (a'=2a), the reciprocal lattice b'=2pi/a'= pi/a

Now now pi/a referes to the X point in the original lattice, but this same 
pi/a
is a full reciprocal lattice vector for the supercell and thus appears at Gamma.

This is called backfolding of of the second half of the Gamma-Delta-X branch 
back to
Gamma-Delta(now X')-Gamma.

There fore the original Gamma-X gap is now a direct Gamma-Gamma gap.

the case.struct file with 16 atomic unit cell (8-Fe, 4-V, 4-Al) with a 16 
number of
co-ordinates such that the structure looks same as in *case one*. But, in this 
structure file, i have used space group as a primitive (1).

Using the Powder cell software, i also checked the XRD of the structures from 
the both cases and similar diffraction pattern were found. I run the volume 
optimization and
min positions before running the spin polarized SCF calculation. However, In 
the First case (space group structure), we run the calculation without complex 
(no inversion).
But, in the second case (primitive), we did the calculations with keeping 
complex ON.

Now, i done the spaghetti plots for these two structures. For the space group 
case, we have observed indirect band picture between gamma and X k-points (X 
point will always
followed by gamma). This nature is already reported in the literature also. 
But, for the second case with primitive structure, i have found the direct band 
like picture in
which both band are touching at the gamma point.

In preparing the case.klist and case.klist_band, i have used similar k-point 
co-ordinates for the both cases.

Why the bands above the Fermi level would not shift to x point in the primitive 
case. Is there any effect of removing the symmetry on the band structure even 
though we did
calculations on the similar structure...?

or else in the first case, calculations did with complex OFF while in the 
second case with complex ON. Is this difference will change the band structure 
nature...?

I could not attach the obtained figures, because i sent same mail with figures 
in few days before but it is not published in wien2k mailing list due to 
limitations in the
mail content size.

thanks in advance and waiting for your replies.
