[Pw_forum] Relationship between pseudo-charge and wave function

I plotted |psi(r)|^2 already.However, I want to know the phase information of wavefunctions additionally. That's the reason I asked.
Do you mean that the ploting "real" wave functions with ultrasoft PP is not implemented in "pw.x" but in "ASAFSIW" now? If it is, could I get "ASAFSIW" ?
Thank you for your answer.

- you can plot |psi(r)|^2 for any wavefunction at any k-point,
using the appropriate options of program pp.x. It's a little
bit clumsy but it is already implemented.
I am not sure whether program pp.x can correctly plot
wavefunctions produced by codes using only Gamma point
(having half of the G components). I am afraid it is not working
now but it will sooner or later (any volunteers?)
- BUT: what you get is just the soft part of the wavefunction.
In the ultrasoft PP method, there is no "complete" wavefunction,
just the soft part. A "real", normalized, all-electron wavefunction,
can be obtained by applying a non-trivial procedure in the PAW
style: see for instance J. Chem. Phys. 115, 5791 (2001). Such
procedure is already implemented and it will be added to the
distribution ASAFSIW (= As Soon As Francesco Says It Works,
Francesco being the guy who wrote the code ... he reads this
mailing list ... ).
Does this answer your question?
