Difference between pi-pi* transition and intramolecular charge transfer ICT in organic solar cells?

Intramolecular charge transfer (ICT( occurs from donors to acceptors in molecules. This phenomenon can be observed by visualizing the charge distribution patterns of HOMO and LUMO. While studying D-A ...

What is the basic equation for total charge calculation from a 3D cube file of charge density file?

I have a 3D charge density file, calculated from Quantum Espresso DFT. If someone calculates the total charge (number of electrons) of an unit cell from that cube file (using a numerical approximation ...
