### Re: Quadratic response calculation

In order to have more information from the output file and in particular to know orbital contributions to the transitions, you need to add the keyword .PRINT LEVEL under *QUADRA section: *QUADRA .PRINT LEVEL 10 (the number set should be greater than two, the default. I don't know exactly which value...

### Re: spin-orbit matrix elements

Strating from matrix elements evaluation,the aim is to calculate an approximate value for nonradiative and radiative transition rate constants and try to connect them to the real photochemical behaviour. I'm aware DFT approach is not the best but I'm not expert about multiconfigurational methods, a ...

### Re: spin-orbit matrix elements

For the purpose I adopted the atomic mean-field approximation (AMFI) at B3LYP/cc-pVDZ to get an estimation just for electronic intersystem crossing between the lowest excited states (from S1-S3 to T1). The inclusion of the vibrational part for the rate constant calculation is a more difficult comput...

### Re: Can Dalton calculation go on without restart?

Hi,

you can the add to .dal file

**WAVE FUNCTIONS

.DFT

B3LYP

*ORBITAL INPUT

.MOSTART

NEWORB

then copy the filename.tar.gz file into your run directory and add the option -f filename.tar.gz to your dalton command.

I hope it works.

best regards

Domenico

Hi, the time comparison was really not correct, infact it was made between dalton2013 for NODIIS and dalton2015 for DIIS + shift level. So I tried to calculate all with dalton2015, but the NODIIS case now exits with: QC-SCF not implemented/tested for DFT. Anyway the energy calculated with NODIIS (da...

I checked D4 against C1 geometry, the C1 energy is more stable by only 0.1 kcal/mol. After trying different ways for DIIS convergence, I found a solution from level shift setting (.SHIFT -0.1 ),it saved about two days of calculation in comparison to the QC algorithm (same initial conditions). I just...

### Re: dft convergence problem

The NODIIS output looks very good - it is converging smoothly, and to sensible atomic charges. Did you run out of time or ? The NODIIS calculation,which is converging, is still running. The calculation running with Dalton2015 and DIIS algorithm is not converging.(attached file) About the remarks ma...

Dear Dalton users, after 60 DIIS and 60 QC-DFT iterations, my wavefunction didn't converge.It is a palladium-phthalocyanine complex.

Hi Zeljka, about the definition of the TPA cross section in a.u. or GM units you can see for example the paper of Frediani et al. (J. Chem. Phys. 122, 244104 2005). Few years ago I also checked the results of the paper you cited with Dalton2.0. At that time the code didn't printed the sigma value so...

### ecphosphorescence

Dear All,

for DFT phosphorescence calculations, the use of the .ECPHOSPH keyword is it correct to use also when no pseudopotentials centers are defined? Is it an alternative way to the AMFI approximation for accounting spin-orbit effects?

Kind regards

Domenico
