Born effective charge from MP

Question from Nitin

When retrieving data from Materials Project using “MPDataRetrieval”, is it possible to get BORN EFFECTIVE CHARGES, if available?


Hey nitin.

MPDataRetrieval is capable of retrieving anything MPRester (from pymatgen) is capable of fetching. You can see the Materials Project API documentation here and the hierarchical documentation here

It looks like it is possible to at least check if the born effective charges were calculated, not sure if you can retrieve them though. You might also ask on the Materials Project category of the forum
