Dear Wangwei,

I use MOLPRO to obtain d-d transitions in crystal systems. The way we do is
to consider one CrO6 octahedra (if the materials is some chromium oxide
with octahedral coordination) from the material system and embedded in an
appropriate potential that recovers the long range Coulomb interactions.
Then we treat the electrons in this small set of atoms using MOLPRO HF and
post-HF calculations to obtain the energies of the d-levels. From this we
obtain the d-d splittings. Hope this helps you.
