Dear Tomas and Fecher
Thank you very much. It is working perfect with lattice type F and symmetry
operations equal to 16. But one thing is confusing me that I applied 5 %
strain to bulk Si and still it is semiconductor with gap 0.2eV. Is it
correct? as 5 % is too much strain and bulk materials tolerate very low
strain. In my thinking it should break.
