Calculating the DOS for spherical quantum dot

    Is any method to calculate the density of states of spherical (purely) quantum dot?

    Well since a quantum dot is just a cluster of atoms yes, you can calculate it's DOS using DFT.

    What DOS do you want to calculate, phonon, electron...?

    Phonon

    PHONONS, I WANT TO CALCULATE PHONONS VIA THIE , BASICALLY INTERESTED WITH ACOUSTIC PHONONS.

    how

    thanks, but i want to know how exactly...basically i am using quantum ezpresso 3.1.1 for DFT.
    so please guide me...
