- | There is a possibility to evaluate rught estimation of UV-VIS absorption spectra by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermi's_golden_rule|Fermi golden rule]] between Kohn-Sham orbitals. For given range range of photon energy are selected all pairs of occupied and unoccupied gorund-state Kohn-Sham orbital with appropriate energy difference. This two orbitals are than projected onto real space grid and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transition_dipole_moment|transition dipole moment]] is computed. Oscilator strength (or probability of transition) is than proportional to squere of length of transition dipole moment. Absorbtion spectra can be than plotted by summing up contributions of oscillator strength for occupied-unoccupied orbital pairs with energy difference falling into particular energy bins (like weighted histogram). | + | There is a possibility to evaluate rough estimation of UV-VIS absorption spectra by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermi's_golden_rule|Fermi golden rule]] between Kohn-Sham orbitals.

- | Note that this method ( Fermi golden rule between ground state single particle states obtained from LDA-DFT ) is very crude approximation of true optical transitions. No beyond-DFT nor beyond-Hratree-Fock correction (such as RPA, TD-DFT, GW, BSE ... ) are used. For this reason transition energy ( positioning of peak ) is mostly not realistic. The method is, however, useful to explore dependence of electronic transition probability on symmetry breaking and changes in shape and localization of electronic states. | + | Note that this method ( Fermi golden rule between ground state single particle states obtained from LDA-DFT ) is a very crude approximation of the true optical transitions.

- | if ''write_out_transition_map'' is set to '1', an '.xsf' file containing spatial distribution of transition dipole moment is outputed for each pair of orbitals. This may be usefull to identify parts of molecule which contribute most to the electronic transition. However, the number of transitions grow quadratically with energy range and each '.xsf' file needs typically more than 100MB of disk space. So in most of cases you would quickly consume HUGE amount of disk space ( like 1 terrabyte ) if you switch this option on. | + | if ''write_out_transition_map'' is set to '1', an '.xsf' file containing spatial distribution of transition dipole moment is outputted for each pair of orbitals.
