Dear Pier PhilipsenThanks a lot for your kind guidance.I have problem with my calculation for optical properties of magnetite. by using space group convergence is achieved but when I apply Hubbard Potential it still gave zero band gap. what should I do to get accurate band gap?Secondly I am trying to find the input parameters for magnetite to investigate structural and optical properties but unable to find these input values. Suggest me how can i find these parameters?
Best Regards

Dear All,I hope everyone is in good health while receiving thisemail. There are some questions regarding BAND module.IN BAND from where we can change cutoff energy to getgeometry optimization?

>From where we can check input parameters for SCF (convergencecriterion…max. force,, Max. Stress…etc.)?

The main parameter is the maximum gradient (being either atomic or due to a lattice change). For a geometry optimization including the lattice you should set GeoOpt%optimizeLattice to true.See here for the details

Is ST functions are same in BAND as PAW is in other softwares?

Band uses a mixture of NAOs and slater type orbitals. In practice the quality is very similar to a pure STO basis. For geometry optimization a TZP basis is recommended.
Success, Pier
