Dear Stacey,

there are multiple applications of DIIS. As it's written now you are using
DIIS as a
directed minimizer (no SCF) in conjunction with the OT method. Instead, I
you want to use DIIS to accelerate the SCF convergence, in which case you
to use TD together with PULAY_MIXING. However, my experience of
is not particularly good when dealing with complicated systems.

Is this the correct way to use the DIIS SCF converger?

            SCF_GUESS ATOMIC
            EPS_SCF 1.0E-8
            MAX_SCF 200
                MINIMIZER DIIS
            &END OT
            &MIXING  .TRUE.
                ALPHA 0.4
                NBROYDEN 8
            &END MIXING
        &END SCF

This section would be located in section: FORCE_EVAL / DFT / SCF / OT
