Re^4: Can we calculate Frequency dependent dielectric constant of any sample?

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.

Regards,

>>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?
