 Ok, I see now that this question is ill posed at best, as the PAO cutoff has nothing to do with the pseudopotential core size.
I did some calculations now starting at spacings of <0.5Ang up to 5Ang. The calculated interaction energies (LDA with GDC solver) differ greatly from the ZBL potential (fitted to nuclear scattering).
Is such a calculation at short interatomic distances at laa possible?
