BoltzTraP2

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

An application for calculating transport coefficients based on the Boltzman equation. Within the relaxation time approximation, transport coefficients such as the Hall coefficient and the Seebeck coefficient can be evaluated from the output of the first principles calculation applications (Wien2k, ABINIT, SIESTA, quantum ESPRESSO, VASP). If users can measure relaxation time experimentally, electric conductivity can also be evaluated.
