In the band structure, there is the corresponding band gap, which can be confirmed
by calculating the band structure.

This means the transmission per spin channel.

Please make sure that the system is one-dimensional, and no k-dispersion for the b-c plane.
"scf.Kgrid 201 1 1" means that the k-dispersion is taken into account along the a-axis
for the calculation of lead part.

The k-resolved transmission is available, and how to get is explained at
which might be utilized to calculate the electron mobility.
