Let E_Fermi be the Fermi energy found in case.scf2 and let E_rubbish be the 
shift you want to apply

IF (E > E_Fermi) E = E + E_rubbish


IF ( E - E_Fermi > 0.0) E = E + E_rubbish

This or something similar can usually be done with every plotting program

Betreff: [Wien] Question about the SCISSORS operation on the calculated density 
of states

Dear all,

I have a simple question about applying the SCISSORS operation to the density 
of states (DOS). I have calculated the density of states for relatively simple 
Mg-silicates in crystalline phases. After that I tried to find a way to apply 
the SCISSORS operation to the calculated DOS, i.e. a rigid shift of conduction 
band to a higher energy region.

I have found that KRAM program can apply the SCISSORS operation to the 
conduction band to obtain reliable optical properties (using OPTIC, JOINT and 
KRAM). KRAM can generate the case.epsilon, case.sigmak, case.eloss, and 
case.sumrules, but it does not seem to be possible to calculate the DOS with a 
shifted conduction band according to the arbitrary defined SCISSORS parameter. 
However, I cannot find a procedure for applying the SCISSORS operation to the 
calculated DOS.

What I want to do is just shift the conduction band in the calculated DOS to a 
higher energy region, not calculating optical properties of the target 
material. How can I apply the SCSSORS operation on the calculated DOS using
