Dear PWSCF users,

I would like to write that I generated pseudopotentials in UPFv1 format 
using the atomic software. Is there a reference to cite for the atomic 
code and for UPF format? Right now, it looks like this:

"these pseudopotentials were generated using the atomic software (ref?) 
in the 'Unified Pseudopotential Format' (UPF) (ref?). "

Do you have any idea how to do that?

Thanks in advance for your help!

PS: I have used UPF v1 pseudopotentials for their ability to be read by 
both CPMD and quantum espresso codes. Unfortunately, UPF v2 do not seem 
readable by CPMD, to my knowledge.
