Re^3: Regarding the CITYP=TDDFT calculation for the excited state

Alex Granovsky

Dear Siddheshwar,

For singlet states, ISTATE = 1 corresponds to S1 state i.e to the first singlet excited state.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky

>But still my doubt is not clear. I want to know that does using cityp=tddft, runtype=optimize actually optimizes FIRST OR LOWEST GROUND STATE? If,yes then how do I ensure that it is the first excited state only. After optimization, what I get is the optimized coordinates...but I am unsure about whether they belong to first excited state or not.

>>is enough. You can omit the second line as ISTATE is set to one by default.

>>>I wish to know Does using "CITYP=TDDFT RUNTYP=OPTIMZE" optimize the lowest (first) excited state? How do I ensure the same? I used the optimized S0 geometry for this run with state tracking on.
