Thanks a lot for your answers. 

I will take a look to the files and try to implement the external field.

Kind regards

One way is to add an external electric field to the constraints. This can be done by following the way that the external magnetic field is implemented in the source codes (search for ext_magn in the files).

Then, one can make the external electric field to depend on the position of the particle. This means that you need an extra input (particle positions) to the functions.

I have done this before for an external electric field which exists only inside a nanopore. The main changed files for espresso-3.2.0 are attached. You may need to change other source files as well to define an extra constraint.

I hope this can be useful.

Best regards,

what you could do is to use a tabulated interaction potential and use
penetrable wall constraints. Just an idea, maybe that helps.
