Sorry for being annoying. Suppose I obtained the index of a particular site, say it's 5. Then, for the eigenvector (call it wf) of the localized state, is it correct to obtain the contribution of that site by wf? Thanks again.

Yes, of course you can still do that. I wanted just to tell you that for your question :
Is the wavefunction corresponding to site i given by evecs[i] ?
the answer is NO. because evec[i] is a vector. So if you want the contribution to the wavefunction at a a given site you need to look at the elements of this vector and the order of the sites of your system needs to be found.
Best regards, Adel

Thank you very much for your help! But I still have a question: In the tutorial http://kwant-project.org/doc/1.0/tutorial/tutorial6, it is demonstrated that the localized wavefunction can be plotted without attaching the leads. What I am trying to do is to extract the intensity of the wavefunction at a particular site. I suppose the intensity at each site plotted by
kwant.plot(sys, site_color=wf, site_symbol=family_shape, site_size=0.5, hop_lw=0, cmap='gist_heat_r')
can be obtained from wf without attaching the leads right? Thanks again for your time.

what you are doing is just diagonalizing a matrix and obtaining the eigenvectors. So, first, this does not concern the whole system (sys with the leads ). second, the eigenvectors are not the wavefunction at a given site and theirfore evecs[i] will return the eigenvector corresponding the the eigenvalues number "i".
If you want the wavefunction, look at this in the documentation:
I have also written this code as an example for you:
import kwant from matplotlib import pyplot
def make_sys(a=1,t=1,l=50): def Tshape(pos): x,y=pos return x**2+y**2<=l lat = kwant.lattice.square(a) sys = kwant.Builder() sys[lat.shape(Tshape, (0, 1))] = 0 sys[lat.neighbors()]=-1
sym = kwant.TranslationalSymmetry((-2, 1)) lead = kwant.Builder(sym) lead[lat.wire((0, 3), 5)] = 0 lead[lat.neighbors()] = -1 sys.attach_lead(lead) sys.attach_lead(lead.reversed()) return sys
sys = make_sys() kwant.plot(sys) sys = sys.finalized() wf = kwant.solvers.default.wave_function(sys, energy=0) wfs_of_lead_0 = wf(0) #wave function due to lead 0 and mode 4
(counting starts from 0)
# if you want this wave function at site 35 just do wf_35=wfs_of_lead_0 #if you want this function at the position x,y=(-5,7) just do Positions=[sys.sites[i].pos for i in range(len(sys.sites))] #list
of all the positions of the sites site_index=Positions.index((-5,7))
wf_5_7=wfs_of_lead_0[site_index] #wave function at site (-5,7) due
to mode 4 of lead 0
print wf_5_7 #plot_conductance(Mysys, energies=[-4.5+0.01/3 * i for i in
# Call the main function if the script gets executed (as opposed to imported). # See http://docs.python.org/library/__main__.html. if __name__ == '__main__': main()
I hope it will help. Best regards, Adel

I obtained the wavefunction of the system by using ham = sys.hamiltonian_submatrix() evecs = la.eigh(ham)
Is the wavefunction corresponding to site i given by evecs[i] ? Thanks!

you need just to finalize your system before doing calculation. so : sys=sys.finalized() m=len(sys.sites)
and it will work . Best regards, Adel

Dear Dr. Adel
I could not compute len(sys.sites) since sys.sites is of the type "method". How should I change it? Thanks.
