Use ``input_data`` for parameters that are already in a dict, all other ``kwargs`` are passed as parameters. Accepts all the options for pw.x as given in the QE docs, plus some additional options: input_data: dict A flat or nested dictionary with input parameters for pw.x pseudopotentials: dict A filename for each atomic species, e.g. ``{'O': 'O.pbe-rrkjus.UPF', 'H': 'H.pbe-rrkjus.UPF'}``. A dummy name will be used if none are given. kspacing: float Generate a grid of k-points with this as the minimum distance, in A^-1 between them in reciprocal space. If set to None, kpts will be used instead. kpts: (int, int, int), dict, or BandPath If kpts is a tuple (or list) of 3 integers, it is interpreted as the dimensions of a Monkhorst-Pack grid. If ``kpts`` is set to ``None``, only the Γ-point will be included and QE will use routines optimized for Γ-point-only calculations. Compared to Γ-point-only calculations without this optimization (i.e. with ``kpts=(1, 1, 1)``), the memory and CPU requirements are typically reduced by half. If kpts is a dict, it will either be interpreted as a path in the Brillouin zone (*) if it contains the 'path' keyword, otherwise it is converted to a Monkhorst-Pack grid (**). (*) see ase.dft.kpoints.bandpath (**) see ase.calculators.calculator.kpts2sizeandoffsets koffset: (int, int, int) Offset of kpoints in each direction. Must be 0 (no offset) or 1 (half grid offset). Setting to True is equivalent to (1, 1, 1). .. note:: Set ``tprnfor=True`` and ``tstress=True`` to calculate forces and stresses. .. note:: Band structure plots can be made as follows: 1. Perform a regular self-consistent calculation, saving the wave functions at the end, as well as getting the Fermi energy: >>> input_data = {<your input data>} >>> calc = Espresso(input_data=input_data, ...) >>> atoms.set_calculator(calc) >>> atoms.get_potential_energy() >>> fermi_level = calc.get_fermi_level() 2. Perform a non-self-consistent 'band structure' run after updating your input_data and kpts keywords: >>> input_data['control'].update({'calculation':'bands', >>> 'restart_mode':'restart', >>> 'verbosity':'high'}) >>> calc.set(kpts={<your Brillouin zone path>}, >>> input_data=input_data) >>> calc.calculate(atoms) 3. Make the plot using the BandStructure functionality, after setting the Fermi level to that of the prior self-consistent calculation: >>> bs = calc.band_structure() >>> bs.reference = fermi_energy >>> bs.plot() """ FileIOCalculator.__init__(self, restart, ignore_bad_restart_file, label, atoms, **kwargs) self.calc = None def set(self, **kwargs): changed_parameters = FileIOCalculator.set(self, **kwargs) if changed_parameters: self.reset() def write_input(self, atoms, properties=None, system_changes=None): FileIOCalculator.write_input(self, atoms, properties, system_changes) io.write(self.label + '.pwi', atoms, **self.parameters) def read_results(self): output = + '.pwo') self.calc = output.calc self.results = output.calc.results def get_fermi_level(self): if self.calc is None: raise PropertyNotPresent(error_template % 'Fermi level') return self.calc.get_fermi_level() def get_ibz_k_points(self): if self.calc is None: raise PropertyNotPresent(error_template % 'IBZ k-points') ibzkpts = self.calc.get_ibz_k_points() if ibzkpts is None: warnings.warn(warn_template % 'IBZ k-points') return ibzkpts def get_k_point_weights(self): if self.calc is None: raise PropertyNotPresent(error_template % 'K-point weights') k_point_weights = self.calc.get_k_point_weights() if k_point_weights is None: warnings.warn(warn_template % 'K-point weights') return k_point_weights def get_eigenvalues(self, **kwargs): if self.calc is None: raise PropertyNotPresent(error_template % 'Eigenvalues') eigenvalues = self.calc.get_eigenvalues(**kwargs) if eigenvalues is None: warnings.warn(warn_template % 'Eigenvalues') return eigenvalues def get_number_of_spins(self): if self.calc is None: raise PropertyNotPresent(error_template % 'Number of spins') nspins = self.calc.get_number_of_spins() if nspins is None: warnings.warn(warn_template % 'Number of spins') return nspins
