Re: How to locate the density of states information in o/p file??

Alex Granovsky


Firefly does not compute DOS directly. As far as I understand
DOS can be easily computed from the data on orbital energies
and this is exactly what GaussSum does.

Perhaps the simplest way to extract orbital energies from Firefly's
output is to use ChemCraft (if you do not have ChemCraft you can
use a trial version):

Open output file, then go to

Tools -> Orbitals -> Show MO energies diagram

then use copy-pasting.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
