The lattice constants are those of the conventional unit cell.
:VOL is the volume of the primitive unit cell.

Subject: [Wien] Volume of BP unit cell.


Dear all,

Before calculating the bandstructure of black phosphorus at ambient pressure (space group 64_Cmca)
I run a scf cicle and check for the unit cell volume (grep :VOL *.scf).
It turns out that the volume of the unit cell is half of the value I expected.
Namely

:VOL  : UNIT CELL VOLUME =     501.04679

while the product of the lattice parameters (the system is orthorhombic)

is a*b*c=1002,09359 Bohr^3.

Here is the struct file.
Best!
