Dear Juming,

You need to specify your basis set file: 
and your pseudo potential lib:

Then you need to specify for each atom type a KIND section:

where you can specify the PP and the basis set for each element.

Your PP type should match you functional (eg. PBE PP for PBE functional) 
and your basis set should match the basis set (eg. both are GTH).

Do not forget to set up the plane wave basis set for extending your density.

You can find examples in tests under QS folder.
