Problem With Constant Electric Field

    Thank you for your reply. I want to see the effect of static field on 
single atom for my work. 
    As I have found, there are only 1 EFIELD option and other is Periodic 
EFIELD. Gaussian envelop in EFIELD is working fine. But Constant and Ramp 
are creating problem. What are the other electric field options? Do you 
mean applying as external potential?  What could you suggest in my case to 
at least run this? 

Thank you
