Re: Do Gaussian and Dalton define functional and basis set the same?

If your question is whether you will get the same result with seemingly the same basis set and DFT functional, the answer is not necessarily. The default definition of the B3LYP functional differ in the two programs (you can get the same functional as used in Gaussian by the B3LYPg functional (see p...

Re: Problems when computing Phosphorescence

In the case of the calculation that crashes, the molecule has Cs symmetry, and thus the program crashes when reading the line in the input following the keyword .ROOTS (it needs to read the number of excited states in both irreducible representations). Thus .ROOTS 4 4 would solve your problem, or tu...

Re: How to calculate excited state nuclear shielding tensor?

Section 4.2.1 in the Dalton manual describes how to do a MCSCF calculation of shielding tensors. By modifying the **WAVE FUNCTION part of the this input example (and the CAS SPACE of course) in order to get the relevant excited state (see Sec. 5.6), you will get the excited-state shielding tensor fr...

Re: Can Dalton use TDDFT to search the geometry of an excited state?

Thanks for the info. In relation to this goal, I should then add that to the best of my knowledge, LSDalton would not be able to optimize the geometry of an excited triplet state, this is not implemented, I believe, and you are then left with MCSCF as an option. Having said this, if you have the exc...

Re: Dipole gradients not possible for high spin

Hi! Dalton does not have full support for ROHF wave functions in the different property modules, as you have now experienced. I note you have a fairly small molecule and quite high symmetry, so my recommendation would be to model the ROHF state through an MCSCF wave function with only the singly occ...

Dalton cannot in the current release calculate excited-state DFT geometries, but this should be possible with LSDalton, and the test case geomopt/Excited_state_opt should show how this can be done, according to the LSDalton 2018 manual: https://daltonprogram.org/manuals/lsdalton2018manual.pdf Altern...

Could you post the entire output file? I am somewhat puzzled by your input, as you ask for 6 spheres to be used, but you have only five heavy atoms in the Si(CH3)4. You also you use a fairly large AREATS.

Re: Calculating response prorperty for more than 30 frequencies

Yes, 30 is the default maximum number of frequencies that can be run in a conventional linear response calculation. You can reset this by changing MFREQ in the file include/infrsp.h. An alternative is of course to do 30 frequencies in each calculation, and do separate calculations and restart from t...

Re: Using electronic wavefunction after NEVPT2 correction for response

The NEVPT2 energy correction has only been implemented as that, an energy correction, and not as correction to the wave function. No properties have been implemented for the NEVPT2 approximation.

Re: Excited state second hyperpolarizability

CO2 is small enough that you may consider also doing an MCSCF calculation, selecting the excited state of interest as the reference state. You can then get the second hyperpolarizability by performing a MCSCF cubic response calculation.

Not in a quadratic response calculation. The problem is that there you will need derivatives of the exchange-correlation kernels which have not been implemented for this functional.

This error is often a symptom of too little memory in the calculation or on the compute cluster. Try increase the memory for the calculation.
