- | First the inputs file for the small geometry (the ''silicon8'') with and without the vacancy to print out the projected density of states as shown in [[PDOS|a previous exercise]] and plot the total density of states. What do you observe when looking at the band gap? | + | Alter the input files for the small geometry (the ''silicon8'') with and without the vacancy to print out the projected density of states as shown in [[PDOS|a previous exercise]] and plot the total density of states for both cases. What do you observe when comparing the band gap of the two geometries? |

- | Now do a geometry optimization on the ''silicon8'' structure with the vacancy and plot the total density of states on that relaxed structure again. Compare again to the total density of states for the unaltered structure. | + | Now do a geometry optimization on the ''silicon8'' structure with the vacancy and plot the total density of states on that relaxed structure again. Compare again to the total density of states for the unaltered structure, what do you see? |
