(2) Calculations of the band dispersion in the fcc structure, where the nonspin polarized collinear calculation with the lattice constant of 3.939 Ang. was performed using Zn_PBE19S.vps and Zn6.0Ss2p2d2, and the origin of the energy is taken to be the Fermi level. The input file used for the OpenMX calculations can be found at ZnfccBand.dat . For comparison the result by the Wien2k code is also shown, where the calculation was performed by default setting in the Ver. 9.1 of Wien2k except for the use of R_{MT} x K_{MAX} of 12.
