Why my values of dielectric function don't match litterature (For Yambo with Quantum ESPRESSO)?

I try to reproduce the dielectric function as the picture bellow using Yambo code but the values that I have found in y-axis are so much bigger [-1000,1500] compared to literature. I generated the scf ...

How to plot the dielectric function calculated with Yambo?

I want to calculate the optical properties using Yambo. I used Quantum ESPRESSO 7.0 with Yambo 5.1.0, but I'm facing an issue. When I generate the dielectric function (o.eps_q1_ip) for example the o....

Is the HOMO energy obtained from GW calculation always a value relative to the vacuum energy (-Ip)?

Aim: I want to obtain a reasonably accurate ionization energy (or work function in other terms) for a 2-dimensional hBN monolayer. The exact material does not matter much respective to the question, ...

How to evaluate the exciton velocity?

I have calculated the exciton wave functions using the GW-BSE method: $$\tag{1}|S\rangle = \sum_{cv\mathbf{k}} A_{cv\mathbf{k}} |cv\mathbf{k}\rangle$$ where $c$ for conduction and $v$ for valence ...

Can GW-BSE quasiparticle calculations only be run on norm-conserving pseudopotentials (NCPPs)? If so, why not?

I've read in some texts that GW-BSE quasiparticle calculations have only been implemented on Norm-conserving Pseudopotentials (and not Ultra-soft or PAW PPs). Is there a conceptual reason for this? I ...
