Change fermi level in OpticalSpectrum
« on: September 12, 2023, 08:51 »
Dear developers and users,
May I know if there is a way to change the fermi level in calculation of optical conductivity? From what I understand, anomalous hall conductivity (AHC) can be calculated from optical conductivity at E=0. But with the default fermi energy, I can only calculate AHC at the fermi level. Thanks you for your time.

best regards,
Sukhito

If you need a real physical shift of the Fermi level, this would have to be done with doping. This can either be done with actual dopants, which puts limits on how low concentration you can use, and you need to simulate a large supercell no matter what, or you can use implicit doping as we do in several examples; see
