AFLOWLIB

A results database of first-principle calculation for material science. This database provides numerical data of crystal structures, band structures, thermodynamic quantities, phase diagrams, magnetic moments, and so on. This site is maintained by a research group of Duke University, and in particular, has extensive data of Heusler alloys. In addition to a user interface based on web browsers, an http-based API is also provided to enable user-defined material screening. This database can be used without charge after registration.

AkaiKKR

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

AkaiKKR is a first-principles all-electron code package that calculates the electronic structure of condensed matters using the Green’s function method (KKR). It is based on the density functional theory and is applicable to a wide range of physical systems. It can be used to simulate not only periodic crystalline solids, but also used to calculate electronic structures of impurity systems and, by using the coherent potential approximation (CPA), random systems such as disordered alloys, mixed crystals, and spin-disordered systems.
