Band gap and band structure inconcistency on the website

I’d like to signal an inconsistency between the band structure and the band gap reported on the website for these two materials: mp-863707, mp-5190. I guess there will be others.

The web page presents a band structure of a metal but the band gap is >0.
The band structure (on symline) from MPRester is metallic with zero gap as shown on the website.


Hi @fraricci, thank you for reporting. We are investigating some inconsistencies in the way VASP reports the bandgap, bandstructure, and fermi level, which can occasionally result in inaccurate bandgaps being reported when we parse the calculations into our database. We hope to have a fix soon.
