Pre-defined basis sets

Since CRYSTAL14, a set of internally stored pre-defined basis sets are available by using the keyword BASISSET (See the CRYSTAL Users's Manual for further details).
The dataset of available basis sets includes (available atomic numbers in parentheses):

Keyword Description
STO-3GPople's STO-3G minimal basis set (1--53)
STO-6GPople's STO-6G minimal basis set (1--36)
POB-DZVPPOB double-zeta valence + polarization set for solid state systems (1--35, 49, 74)
POB-DZVPPPOB double-zeta valence basis set + a double set of polarization functions for solid state systems (1--35, 49, 83)
POB-TZVPPOB triple-zeta valence + polarization basis set for solid state systems (1--35, 49, 83)
