GaN phonon (Phonons in Wurtzite structure )

Post by t.marinheiro » Tue May 21, 2019 1:11 pm

I am having a bit of difficulty analysing the data I obtain from a phonon calculation on Wurtzite GaN

. When I look at the output file of the full phonon calculation the phonon frequencies (for gamma=0 )

do not match the published values. When I look at the results with nonanalytic behaviour in different directions (i.e. {0 0 1} and {0 1 0}) I do get values which are similar to the published ones if I use frequencies from both {0 0 1} and {0 1 0} nonanalytic calculation. However when I run a anadbb calculation

I get something which looks nothing like what it should. What should I do when I am performing a phonon calculation on a wurtzite structure, with nonanalicity?

All the best,

Dear Tiago,
You are using the HGH pseudopotentials, while there are much more recent pseudos that have been optimized through the pseudodojo project, I would advise to use these ones:
Best wishes,
