More information can be found here: [[doi>​10.1126/​science.1158722]] + + A common approach to correct for electronic self-interaction is the //ad hoc// mixing of a fraction of the exact Hartree-Fock exchange. The goal of this exercise is to identify the needed amount of exact Hartree-Fock exchange (%hfx) to correctly reproduce the anatase TiO$_2$ experimental band gap (3.2 eV). To do so, you will need to run at least 4 single point calculations on bulk TiO$_2$ with varying amount of exact exchange. ​ + + Report the result as follows: + ^%hfx^E$_{gap}$^ + | 0  | ... | + | 10 | ... | + | .. | ... | + Then plot E$_{gap}$ ​ as a function of %hfx. By interpolating the data on the plot, the needed amount of hfx to correctly reproduce the experimental band gap can be determined. + + + Hybrid calculations can be fairly expensive, because they scale with $\mathcal{O}(N^4)$. Therefore, you should run these jobs on 16 nodes. To further decrease the cost of the calculation,​ you can restart from previously generated wave-function files (*-RESTART.wfn). At the end of this exercise, a readily optimized wave-function is provided to you. + ​ + + ===== Questions ===== + - What is the relation between %hfx and $E_\text{gap}$?​ + - What is the correct amount of exchange needed to reproduce the experimental band gap? + + ===== Required files ===== + ==== Parameters for Truncated Coulomb Potential ==== + {{t_c_g.dat.gz| Download here}} + ​ + ==== Restart wave-function ==== + This is useful to speed up the calculation + ​{{tio2_pbe-restart.wfn.gz| Download here}} + + <​note>​ These files are compressed with gzip.
