Thanks a lot for your helping.
As I said before, I wanted to simulate a nanostructure and I began my job
with Wien2k code but this software takes a long time to run and for reducing
the time i need supercomputers that i don't have. So i decided to change my
software. And now i start to do it with espresso code.My first problem is
that I don't know whether the espresso code could simulate it or
not.Youare an expert. would you please tell me, if it is possible to
nanostructure with using espresso code until I began my study about PWscf
and espresso code or i have to change it again.
