Hi Abid,

(hbar/e)*S/cm is the unit of SHC for 3D structures, e^2/h is the unit of AHC 
for 2D structures. If you are calculating SHC of a 2D structure by using a 
slab with vacuum, then you could first multiply the result by the thickness 
along z axis (assuming z axis is the direction normal to the slab plane, i.e. 
the total thickness of the slab and the vacuum), so now the unit is (hbar/
e)*S. Secondly, multiply the result by (-2e/hbar) [i.e. "convert" a spin 
angular momentum (hbar/2) to a charge (-e)], now the unit is S. Since e^2/hbar 
~= 2.434e-4 S, it's easy to do the reverse and you get the unit in e^2/h.
