Dear Dirac Experts,

I'm trying to compute NQCC for the sets of nonlinear molecules. I selected H2S as test molecules. The experimental values are (approximately): Xaa=-32 MHz, Xbb=-8 MHz, Xcc=40 MHz (page 417 in " MICROWAVE MOLECULAR SPECTRA" by Gordy  & Cook, Wiley, 1984). The values predicted at SCF/ae3z level are completely different Xxx=2.22 MHz, Xyy=-3.84 MHz, Xzz=-1.61 MHz. What's more, the EFG components multiplied by 234.9647 and quadrupole moment of 33S (-0.0678 Barn) are very close to the experimental values (the order of axis is different). I do not understand the situation. I guess that Dirac's NQCC values may base on another definition of the quadruple nuclear coupling constant. I will be very grateful for any help.

All the best
Marcin

Dear Marcin Gronowski,

I'm not a Dirac expert but I'll try to answer your question (if u already couldn't solve it - sry for the delay).
To understand how DIRAC performs the EFGs (and NQCCs) calculations you can acces the PROPERTIES section of DIRAC's manual (http://www.diracprogram.org/doc/release-19/manual/properties.html?highlight=nqcc#nqcc) where you can see that a transformation to principal axis is performed, so the way DIRAC treats the molecule symmetry is crucial.
A minor issue is that you were requesting something on the MOLTRA module, but u're not using it (because just a DHF calculation is performed).

I attach two outputs where you can see that calculated values for the NQCCs with no symmetry detection are really close to the experimental ones that you cited. I'm not sure if those values that you are referring to are for the NQCC's on the principal axis of the system.

Best regards,

Juan J. Aucar

Dear Juan J. Aucar

Thank you for your clarification. The NQCC's, which I quoted,  are on the principal axis of the system. So it seems that I should look into the code to understand what Dirac does with EFG to obtain NQCC.

All the best
Marcin
