 +A broadening energy can be defined by the command ''<​Broadening>''​. Indeed, scattering is not accounted in the contact, so that this commands allows a phenomenological broadening of the density of states in the contact. 
 + 
 +The command ''<​Ballistic>''​ can be used to calculate ballistic transport between the contacts (i.e. no scattering process considered) if its value is set to ''​yes''​.
