Dear Fabien,
        I think that there is a confusion here;
        Semi empirical methods need parameters and one get, adjusting 
parameters, good results
        On the other hand DFT, in principle, does not need adjustable 
parameters.
        There are issues that need adjustable parameters, such as the Hubbard U.
        My impression was that the BJ was an improvement that did not need any 
extra adjustable parameters, but from what you are saying, I am wrong. Is this 
the case?
        We used the mBJ for K2LnTa3O10 (1) and for Ce1/3NbO3 (2) and we got 
good results. Was this just good luck?
            Yours

Asunto: Re: [Wien] How to get accurate GAP using BJ or mBJ methods?

The fundamental problem of DFT is to be an approximate method whatever
is the xc functional/potential that is used.

Anyway, if you really need band structure for your compounds with correct
band gap, then you can empirically adjust the parameter c of the mBJ
potential until the desired band gaps is obtained. For this, you need
to create the file case.in0abp.
For instance if you want to fix c to 1.2, the case.in0abp should be like
this (see Sec. 4.5.9 of the UG):
1.2
0.0
1.0
