Thanks a lot for your valuable help.
Finally, I could reach my goal, i.e. apply simple sin-wave electric field.
As you pointed out, the original GROMACS code already includes some
electric field function.
However, for simple cos-wave (not the pulsed cos-wave), there is no phase
in the original code (up to 5.0.2).
Then, it is not possible to change it sin-wave.
Modify the line in mdlib/sim_util.c (function calc_f_el) as in the
if (Et[m].n == 3)
t0 = Et[m].a;
/* Ext[m] = cos(Et[m].a*t); original
Ext[m] = cos(Et[m].a*(t-Et[m].phi)); /* modified
form with phase */
add the phase term for the simple cos-wave field.
Then, mdp file lines in the followings,
; Electric fields
; Format is number of terms (int) and for all terms an amplitude (real)
; and a phase angle (real)
E-x = 1 1.0 0.0
E-xt = 1 3.1415e-2 50.0
makes cos-wave electric fields with omega=3.1415e-2 (1/ps, period=200ps)
and phase=50ps, i.e. sin-wave.
Thanks a lot again.
