Carrier concentration

Post by ilias-serifi »

Hello dear users and experts
I seek for using the carriers concentration of holes and electrons in order to have their effects on superconducting properties
can i use ncarrier in the calculation of superconducting gap.
best

Hi Ilias,

Unfortunately, ncarrier is ignored in superconductivity calculations.
You can change the Fermi level manually by setting "efermi_read" and "fermi_energy" instead. However, even though you calculate a superconducting gap and see the dependence of Fermi level using them, you cannot output a doped amount of electrons corresponding to each Fermi energy in the EPW code.

Best,
Hitoshi
