- Dear Prof. Ozaki,
I use OpenMX for calculations of metal-nitride systems.
I realized that although the code works reasonably well for fcc structures, I always end up in troubles when it comes to hcp structures.
Somehow the potential curve always looks messy when I am trying to relax either a or c , in particular around the expected minimum values.
It came to my attention that the relaxation seems to move atoms out of the unit cell every now and then. If this is the reason for my problem (breaking of symmetry), how can I avoid that?
I am using EF geometric optimization.
