Hi,

I'm trying to calculate raman intensities using XC M06-2X. Optimization works fine, but when it starts calculating the polarizability for raman calculations i get this error:

  xm06: d2 not coded                    0

This is my input file:

echo

start G1_m06-2x

title "G1_m06-2x"

Calculating the polarizability requires second derivatives of the exchange-correlation functional, and as stated in the documentation, second derivatives of the Minnesota functionals have not been implemented. The new (and still listed as experimental) NWXC module (http://www.nwchem-sw.org/index.php/Release66:Density_Functional_Theory_for_Molecules#NWXC_...) potentially should be able to calculate those second derivatives through its automatic differentiation. Though as I stated, that module is still listed as experimental so check results with extra care (if it works at all).

thanks for your answer, I thought it was something like that.

when I use:

 XC new m06-2x

it says i dont have nwxc_input in my build, how do I install that module? I thought it's supposed to be in release 6.6 already (am running 6.6).

You should be able to just add nwxc to your NWCHEM_MODULES variable and then recompile (including make nwchem_config step). For example, NWCHEM_MODULES="all nwxc"

Unfortunately,the second derivative part of the nwxc module might not be ready for use in NWChem

thank you, Sean

I'll try this and see if it works

what does might not be ready mean? unstable? unreliable result?

In any case, I will try this and see what happens.

Thank you for responding,

I meant to say: you might not be able to get the code producing the 2nd derivatives for m06-2x working (i.e. not even being able to produce a single result)
