** Re^2: Can we calculate Frequency dependent dielectric constant of any sample? **

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? Regards,
