Hi,

I was trying to calculate IV characteristics for molecular junction in LCAO calculator, the spin-orbit coupling (non-collinear) is implemented in the LCAO calculator for pure functional. My question is it possible to do transport calculation with spin-orbit coupling in molecular junction with hybrid functional like HSE06? Because when I'm selecting hybrid functional calculation the calculator is automatically changed itself to the Unpolarized configuration. Is there any way out or I'm making something conceptually very wrong?

Waiting for your quick response!

Thank You

Sumit

Hi Sumit

NEGF calculations with hybrid functionals and spin-orbit is not yet supported, but it is planned and we hope to include it in the next release.

Best regards
Ulrik
