Dear Users and Developers,
 In the last performed comparing DFT solid codes in the site "https://molmod.ugent.be/deltacodesdft", QE is the best pseudopotential code with "SSSP-Accuracy" which is a mixture of PAW, US, and NC pseudopotentials.
My question is about this mixture process. Can we use them simultaneously in one simulation run? For example, in a calculation of Alcohol+TiO2 surface, Is it possible to choose US for carbon, PAW for Ti, and NC for O? (this is only an example).
