ADF

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 3 ★★★

Payware for quantum chemical calculation based on the density functional theory. This application supports relativistic effects needed in treatment of transition-metal complexes and heavy elements, and can also treat effect of solvents with the method of COSMO and 3D-RISM. In addition to ordinal optical spectra, it can evaluate various spectra data such as NMR, atomic vibration, electron spin resonance, and nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR).

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.

    ALAMODE

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

    A program package for constructing interatomic force fields which explicitly consider lattice anharmonicity. In combination with a molecular dynamics simulator LAMMPS and an external first-principles package such as VASP and Quantum ESPRESSO, ALAMODE extracts harmonic/anharmonic force constants of solids and calculates phonon dispersion, phonon DOS, Gruneisen parameter, phonon-phonon scattering probability, lattice thermal-conductivity, anharmonic phonons at finite temperature, phonon free energy and so on.

    almaBTE

    • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
    • Document quality 0 ☆☆☆

    An application for calculating thermal transport properties based on the phonon Boltzman equation. This application has its own database for phonon properties of materials, and can utilize it for evaluating heat conductivity and specific heat of crystals, alloys, and heterostructures combining them. Phonon-energy resolved contribution to heat conductivity and specific heat can also be calculated. This application also supports calculation of time-dependent response and steady state analysis.

    BLOCK

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

    An open-source application for quantum chemical calculation based on the density-matrix renormalization group (DMRG). For systems with a number of atomic orbitals, low-lying energy eigenvalues can be calculated in high accuracy of order of 1kcal/mol. This application is suitable especially to calculation of multi-orbital systems with one-dimensional topology such as chain-like or circular-like configuration of orbits.

    CONQUEST

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

    CONQUEST is a linear-scaling DFT (Density Functional Theory) code based on the density matrix minimization method. Since its computational cost, for both memory and computational costs, is only proportional to the number of atoms N of the target systems, the code can employ structure optimization or molecular dynamics on very large-scale systems, including more than hundreds of thousands of atoms. It also has high parallel efficiency and is suitable for massively parallel calculations.
