[molpro-user] Spin-Orbit Calculation

You will see a spin-orbit splitting only if you include both components of the doublet Delta states in the spin-orbit matrix element calculation. Here's a simple example that is perhaps easier to understand than what you posted.



! both components of doublet Delta
! only one component of doublet Delta

The result in the output file always shows a degeneracy between two states which are always having the same value instead of splitting (table in the last output file)! In other words, the two states are not splitting they are giving the same results! I tried the same calculation for another molecule (LiYb molecule) the same result persist. Kindly, find in the attachment the output and input file of the spin-orbit calculation of the BaF molecule. May you please tell me if there anything missing in the input, or if this is normal in the output results?
