I got interested in this project after I saw the talk on "exciting" by Christian Vorwerk at the DPG in Regensburg. In the presentation, there were clearly some very well done computations of the Ti L edge shown, including the spin-orbit coupling. The excitonic effects on the branching ratio may be very relevant to my own research interest and I'd like to reproduce some of this work.
I am slightly confused at this point because according to the information on this site, "exciting" does not feature spin-orbit coupling yet. Is that outdated? Is Mr. Vorwerk using an unpublished beta version or additional programs?
Thanks for helping!
