Quadratic response calculation
Hello everyone,
I am starting to study the theoretical optical absorption of excited states of organic molecules. To do that, I need to learn how to calculate the quadratic response with double residues and I know that DALTON perform these type of calculation. I am trying to do some tests with DALTON, but I do not know if I am using the correct keywords. I am using the following ".dal" file (in the ".mol" file I inserted basis set and the cartesian coordinates of a structure optimized in excited state S1):
**GENERAL
.RUN RESPONSE
.DIRECT
*PARALLEL
**WAVE FUNCTION
.DFT
CAMB3LYP
**RESPONSE
*QUADRA
.DIPLEN
.DOUBLE RESIDUE
.ROOTS
5
*END OF
Is that input right or I need to put something more? In the output, where can I find the obtained excitations and contributions?
Someone could help me or give me some tips?
Thank you!

Hi,
which kind of absorption spectra are you going to calculate, one or twophoton electronic spectra?

Re: Quadratic response calculation
Let me expand on Domenico's posting: what is it you want to do? Telling us you want to calculate quadratic response and asking us to say whether your input is correct is asking us to read your mind! (Unless there are obvious gross errors in your input.) It will be much easier for us to help  and we are invariably willing to do so  if you ask a specific question, not one that is so general there are dozens of answers! Also, have you looked through the test jobs to see whether there is anything related to what you want to do? There are very many possibilities among the test suite.
Best regards
Pete

I want to study the onephoton absorption from excited states of some organic molecules, in order to evaluate the photophysics from pumpprobe experiment. Then, I know that I have to calculate the quadratic response with double residues in order to evaluate the possible transitions starting from the S1 (or other) excited state. As I am new user in DALTON, firstly I am trying to reproduce the results of one paper (J Phys Chem C, 2013, 117, 6889) and then, study the cases that I have interest. I did not find an example of this kind of calculation in the test jobs of DALTON
Studying the manual and some examples in the internet, I built the input above to do this calculate. But, I do not know if I insert the correct keywords in the input and where the information of the occurred electronic transitions (and the orbitals contribution) are shown in the output.
Overall, I want to calculate the allowed electronic transitions starting from a specific excited state (for example, S1>Sn). Then, I would like to know how to do this calculation and where I have to search the results in the output.

Re: Quadratic response calculation
Hello,
your input looks fine if you run in C1 symmetry, otherwise you need to specify the number of roots per IRREP.
The relevant output looks like this
@Transition moment <B  A  C> in a.u. for
@A operator label, symmetry, spin: XDIPLEN 1 0
@B excited state no., symmetry, spin: 1 1 0
@C excited state no., symmetry, spin: 3 1 0
@B and C excitation energies, moment: 0.20156926 0.25149532 0.41168010 [<<<< this is it, with states B, C and the dipole comp. as given in the previous lines]
which should be relatively selfexplanatory. Notice you'll also get "transitions" like <B  A  B > (so the exc state dipole moments)
Unless you want to do it by hand, my suggestion is to write a python script to do the post processing and find all the Sn>Sm
transition moments (and the Sm>Sn as well) and remove the <SnASn> moments...
Give it a try and if you get in troubles write back to the forum
Best regards

Re: Quadratic response calculation
Just a short comment. In Dalton we have tried to always let the most important lines with results start with a '@' in column 1 (I am sure you can find important output where we haven't yet added an '@' in column 1, you are welcome to let us know if/when you find cases like that).
The idea is that you from the big Dalton output file can get a summary by doing the unix/linux command

Re: Quadratic response calculation
Dear all,
I did the calculation of allowed electronic transitions starting from S1 excited state, according to the input show above and with the suggestion of Dr. Sonia. I am getting some blocks like this:

@ Transition moment <B  A  <A>  C> in a.u. for
@ A operator label, symmetry, spin: ZDIPLEN 1 0
@ B excited state no., symmetry, spin: 1 1 0
@ C excited state no., symmetry, spin: 2 1 0
@ B and C excitation energies, moment: 0.13170418 0.16733093 0.21504440

For this block example, am I having a transition S1>S2, right? Is the transition 0.03562675 a.u.?
I would need the orbital contributions in each allowed transition and the oscillator strength; do I need to insert some specific keywords to do this? I did not find in the output no information thereof (different when we perform linear response, in which this information is given in the output.
Thank you in advance
Eliezer

And yes, you'll compute the energy S2S1 by difference [E(S2)  E(S0)] [E(S1)  E(S0)]= 0.167330930.13170418=0.03562675 a.u.

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 is more appropriate for you)

Re: Quadratic response calculation
It is not correct since the S0T1 transition dipole moment is spinforbidden. What your input describes is <Sr*s_zT>. What you probably want is the higherorder phosphorescence transition. Look in the test cases for *phosph* to see an example

Re: Quadratic response calculation
Dear Olav
Thank you very much for your quick reply. I want to compute the transition dipole moments of SnTn and S0T1 rather than phosphorescence transition. First, I calculate the transition dipole moment of SnTn according to posts, but I do not know whether the output is correct. If it's convenient for you, could you help me look at the output file is right? (see attachment) Second, I recently read the literature (Journal of Materials Chemistry C, 2016, 4 68296838), the TableS3 list the transition dipole moments of molecule from T1 to S0. I also want to calculate this dipole moment, but I don't know what example should I refer to or what key word should I add ? I need your help and hope to get your help. Thank you.

Re: Quadratic response calculation
The dipole transition SnTn is still spin forbidden and you need a perturbation such as spinorbit to get a nonzero value, i.e. this is a phosphorescence transition. In Dalton you can only do this with S0Tn (quadratic response single residue) where S0 is the reference ground state. It is not possible to calculate this for the more general case SnTn.

Re: Quadratic response calculation
Olav has already solved your problem for you, although of course learning that there is no mechanism for computing spinforbidden matrix elements between Sn and Tn may not be the answer you had hoped for. But let me add one thing. If your molecule(s) of interest has some spatial symmetry then it may be that you can perform e.g. an MCSCF calculation on an excited singlet that is the lowest state of its given symmetry. In the most extreme case (that Dalton can handle) of D2h symmetry you could specify up to eight states of different spatial symmetry as "S0" and then do the phosphoresence transitions, as Olav has outlined. Obviously, if your molecule has no symmetry this is not helpful, but just in case...

Re: Quadratic response calculation
The input is correct, but you can remove the DIPLEN keyword which will calculate a lot of things you do not need. The output is probably correct given the approximation that has been specified, but if it any good is for you to decide.

I know this calculation need QUADRATIC response with SINGLE RESIDUE, but my result (see attachment) seems to be wrong by adding the DIPLEN word under QUADRATIC.

Re: Quadratic response calculation
Dear olav and all
I found that I was wrong in terms of calculating the dipole moment from ground state to singlet excited states. I use the linear response with single residue to calculate the dipole moment of S0Sn, and add the .DIPLEN under *LINEAR. I get a little bit of a deviation from the literature( (Journal of Materials Chemistry C, 2016, 4 68296838). I don't know whether I'm right. If I am wrong, could you tell me? At the same time, by setting the different values of ROOTS (5,10 see attachment), the result
I get have a little difference. I don't know what effect this difference has on the outcome. I need your help and hope to get your help. I will apperiate If I get your help. Thank you.
