- Selected norm-conserving PPs for SCAN
If nobody else has produced the PP you need, you have to generate it, using the ld1.x atomic PP generation code included in the Quantum ESPRESSO distribution. You may try first of all to modify the input files of the PSlibrary to suit your needs.
If you prefer, you may use another PP generation package, such as:
- Natalie Holzwarth’s atompaw code (PAWsets)
- David Vanderbilt’s code (UltraSoft PPs, includes most generation data)
- OPIUM (Norm-Conserving PPs)
- APE: Atomic Pseudopotentials Engine (Norm-Conserving PPs)
- Don Hamann’s onsvpsp code (Norm-Conserving, fully relativistic PPs), see this message for instructions
- The Fritz Haber code (Norm-Conserving PPs)
- José-Luís Martin’s code (Norm-Conserving PPs)
The first five codes produce PPs in one of the supported formats; the fourth, in a format that can be converted to UPF using the utilities contained in directory upflib/ of the QE distribution.
