If sgroup has given you two impurity atom sites, then their environment is different as that is what sgroup (and other code such as nn) looks at. Hence their EFG is different. If their environment was truly the same then sgroup would have merged them to one, with perhaps a change in cell..
How they are different is impossible for us to guess as we don't know what your structure is. If you have an oxide or insulator you can grep Bond in case.outputnn to look at the BVS, otherwise look in case.outputnn for the bond distances and angles. Their are many other post scf tools that will show you that they are different, for instance grep VCOUL, CTO and others. -- Professor Laurence Marks (Laurie) Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Northwestern University www.numis.northwestern.edu "Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought" Albert Szent-Györgyi On Thu, Jul 27, 2023, 07:50 Ashwani Kumar <ashwani....@gmail.com> wrote: > Thanks Dr. Blaha, > One more doubt.
