Dear Honyi,

have a look at this:
Davide Ceresoli and David Vanderbilt, "Structural and dielectric 
properties of amorphous ZrO2 and HfO2, Physical Review B 74, 125108 (2006).

Maybe they report the parameters used to generate the pseudo,
or you could ask directly, politely, to Davide or to David if
they could send you a copy.

If they do, send the pseudo also to Paolo Giannozzi,
Paolo Giannozzi <p.giannozzi at fisica.uniud.it>, so he can
update the web site, and mention that it was used for the paper
