I’m having two problems with the Si DOS in MP (https://www.materialsproject.org/materials/mp-149/)
- The “interactive plot” just gives me the spinning molecule of death (technical issue)
- The DOS itself, e.g., the valence band, just looks strange with all the various jagged curves. Sometimes the DOS drops down to zero (e.g., in the valence band between -0.5 and -0.75 eV) even though the band structure looks smooth. The DOS on AFLOWlib looks much smoother (http://aflowlib.org/material.php?id=aflow:a17a2da2f3d3953a) and more “correct”. (scientific issue)
Any idea what is happening?
