Re^5: Can we calculate Frequency dependent dielectric constant of any sample?

Alex Granovsky

Dear Siddheshwar,

I'm sorry for misinterpreting your question.

The polarizability computed using TDHF/TDDFT is the electronic
polarizability. The only reason why it is not possible to enter
very small frequency values is that computed frequency-dependent
polarizability will in fact be virtually identical to the static one.
I can remove this check but this will be of little help to you.

Kind regards,

>Dear Alex,
>Thats not exactly the answer for what I asked. I want to know what should be the values of FREQ(1) for frequencies corresponding to 1MHz to 20GHz. As I understood from the FIREFLY manual, I can only  set a minimum of 0.000001 a.u. which corresponds to around 10e11 Hz. Thats the concern to me.. This range means that I can set a minimum of 100Ghz or so.. Please help.

>>>Dear Alex,
>>>Thank you for the information. As per your input file, I ran the program to find polarizability of a molecule. I wish to ask that is it possible to give the FREQ(n) array for a range of 1MHz to 20GHz? Is it possible to get this frequency range in FIREFLY?
