Calculated electric quadrupole moments

The electric quadrupole moment is a measure of the charge distribution in a molecule. The calculated quadrupole moments are reported as symmetric matrix components in units of D Å (Debye times Angstrom) or e a02 (electron charge times bohr squared).
The currently chosen quadrupole units are D Å
