thank you very much Prof. Blaha and Pavel,

Prof. Blaha: Yes, in the paper author reported the sharp peal for lowest
exciton transition using BSE theory.

Prof. Pavel:

I do not have any experience about BSE calculations so for now I want to
bindup the project with DFT only.

I have finished the calculation with -SO now and the shape of the
absorption spectra has changes significantly.


The experimental band gap of the compound is 1.62 eV and I am getting it
1.1 eV with SO.
In the revised absorption coefficient calculated from Wien2k
<https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxkZnRmYXRpbWE1fGd4OjZiOGYyYTI3MGQ5N2RjMjk>,
the absorption peak starts from ~1.0 eV followed by a shoulder like shape
at ~3.eV.
In many literature paper, people reported a small broad peak around  1.7 eV
and then at ~2.5eV.

If I do a tau plot then the onsite absorption edge occurs at ~1.7eV.

My further queries are:

1. Should I report the tau plot to compare my tau plot peak with the the
sharp absorption peak observed in experiment

or
2. Is it possible to apply scissors correction so that my broad shoulder
like peak may shifts to lower energy side?

Thanks and regards
Ms. Fatima
