Electronic Structure Lab

General interests of the group are understanding the electronic structure of materials using density functional theory. Current interests include charge transfer excitations in donor acceptor complexes (organic photovolatics), linear and non linear polarizabilities of molecules.

Bug Report Template

Miscommunication is one of the reasons why software development delays. Accuracy and clarity are the two important qualities in communication, and this is also true in reporting a bug found in NRLMOL/FLOSIC code. The below is the template for reporting a bug.
