Li+
« on: June 13, 2019, 11:36 »
Hello,

I am looking to find a way to import Li+ in my calculations. Is it possible to do that in ATK?

Thanks

I need to deliver lithium ion directly in my calculations. I think I need a pseudopotential for this aim.

There is no special Li+ pseudopotenial, at least not in QuantumATK. My guess that you should use regular Li atoms described with a conventional pseudopotential. I guess Li atoms may become ionic (Li+) after inserting them into some specific environment/material by donating an electron or its fraction to other species in the system, which is system-dependent indeed.
