Spin flip components of transmission function
« on: April 29, 2022, 13:16 »

I was wondering if it is possible to print the 'DownUp' component of the transmission function while doing the non-collinear spin-orbit calculation of a molecular junction?

As from the output, only the 'Up,' 'Down,' 'Re(UpDown),' and 'Im(UpDown)' components are returned by the program, whereas the 'UpDown' components are spin-flip components, but there should be 'DownUp' component as well. My question: is it possible to print 'Re(DownUp)' and 'Im(DownUp)' components in the same spirit as the previous spin-flip components returned by the program?

Any help/comment will be highly appreciated.

Unless I am mistaken, the transmission matrix should be Hermitian, thus the DownUp component would just be the complex conjugate of UpDown
