Reducing Transmission Broadening

Asked by Luca Sementa on 2020-09-07

Dear Developers

Could you please indicate me which are the Siesta/Transiesta variables that play a
role in reducing the broadening of the average transmission in order to
resolve as much as possible the peaks?

Best Regards
Luca Sementa

The eta value determines the "smearing" of the DOS, and thus also the transmission.

Dear Nick

Thank you for your answer.
I did as you suggested but what I get is not too much different from my previous results. I added the following lines to my input:

TS.Elecs.Eta 1.0E-6 eV
TBT.Contours.Eta 1.0E-6 eV
TBT.Elecs.Eta 1.0E-6 eV

Did I do it right?
Best Regards.

If you used that small values, then probably you won't be able to smooth them more. So, yes that was the correct way. :)

Can you help with this problem?
