Dear Wu F:
        You can try to increase the value of nbnd of scf and nscf.

Subject: [Pw_forum] How to show bands above fermi level in PDOS?

Hello everyone,
         I am calculating PDOS of an insulator. In the initial SCF, keyword ‘nbnd’ is not specified. A NSCF calculation, still without ‘nbnd’ keyword, is done to get Fermi level. And in the later PDOS calculation, no band above Fermi level is showed. If I need to show some bands above Fermi level, from where should I restart my calculation? Is it necessary to rerun SCF with a large ‘nbnd’ or there are some quicker way to do it ?
