[Pw_forum] Defining spin states in PWscf

Dear Andrea,

Thanks for your reply.
I am aware of the physics that you have pointed out.

Nevertheless, what i desire to obtain the 'j' states which are defined

for example in the silicon system, after considering the spin-orbit
coupling, the 1st and 2nd valence band are degenerate:
prepared by taking the linear superposition of:  j = 1/2, j = -1/2.

Is there any command in QE, which i can use to obtain these exact states,
rather than their superposition?
