HOLE ihole s02

The HOLE card is equivalent to the EDGE card, but the shell is specified by a hole-code index. It includes the hole-code index and the amplitude reduction factor just as the EDGE card does. If the entry for is less than 0.1, then will be estimated from atomic overlap integrals. Experimental values of are typically between 0.8 and 1.0. The defaults if the HOLE card is omitted are ihole=1 for the K shell and . The hole codes are shown in this table of Hole Codes, however, note that FEFF9 will not accept ihole=0 and one must use the NOHOLE card instead to calculate without the core-hole.

For ihole > 4, the core-hole lifetime parameter () is not tabulated in feff and is set equal to 0.1 eV, since the final state losses are then dominated by the self-energy. Use the EXCHANGE card to make adjustments ( = 0.1 + 2 ยท vi0).
