**General Questions and Answers / Calculate Local Density of States perpendicular to device transport direction**

« **on:**September 23, 2021, 18:21 »

Hello, I have a zigzag germanene nanoribbon device and am able to calculate LDOS and PDOS in the transport (z) direction (results attached), but I am interested in the LDOS in the perpendicular (x) direction to show evidence of the quantum spin hall effect. However the LDOS calculations seem to automatically choose the transport direction and I can't figure out how to change that. Is it possible to do so in ATK? Any assistance is greatly appreciated, thank you
