We report the implementation of the local response dispersion (LRD) method in an electronic structure program package aimed at periodic systems and an assessment combined with the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof (PBE) functional and its revised version (revPBE). The real-space numerical integration was implemented and performed exploiting the electron distribution given by the plane-wave basis set. The dispersioncorrected density functionals revPBE1LRD was found to be suitable for reproducing energetics, structures, and electron distributions in simple substances, molecular crystals, and physical adsorptions.
