le2 [l2lp]

Specifies which multipole transitions to include in the calculations. The options are: only dipole ( $\mathtt{le2}=0$, default), dipole and magnetic dipole ( $\mathtt{le2}=1$), dipole and quadrupole ( $\mathtt{le2}=2$).

The additional field l2lp can be used to calculate individual dipolar contributions coming from $L \rightarrow L+1$ ( $\mathtt{l2lp}=1$) and from $L \rightarrow L-1$ ( $\mathtt{l2lp}=-1$). Notice that in polarization dependent data there is also a cross term, which is calculated only when $\mathtt{l2lp}=0$.
