Re^9: Geometry optimization of First Excited state.....

Siddheshwar Chopra

Dear Pedro,
Yes sir. I agree with you. Could you provide a sample input file for excited state optimization say for benzene? Now how do I use this optimized geometry for TDDFT run? Another sample i/p file for this run would be welcome.. Sir will the o/p of this run show me possible transitions from LUMO TO HOMO?  Any o/p file you could provide which would help in understanding this?
