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.

WIEN2k

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

Program package for first-principles calculation based on all-electron calculation method and augmented plane-wave basis. This package performs electronic-state calculation such as band calculation of solids, structure optimization, first-principles molecular dynamics, and so on. All-electron method, which treats core electrons, improves accuracy in calculation compared with pseudo-potential method, and enables us to obtain chemical shifts related to core electrons. This payware can be used by making a contract with the developer.

Atomistix Toolkit (ATK)

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

Payware for evaluation of electron transport based on nonequilibrium Green’s function. This application is descended from the SIESTA application, and can calculate electronic transport properties of bulk materials and molecules inserted between leads by performing electronic state calculation under a finite bias. One can choose either density functional method or semiempirical method, and can control external factors such as gate voltages. It also implements structure optimization and analysis of chemical reaction paths.

FPLO

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

An application for first-principles calculation based on the all-electron method with localized bases. Compared with the standard all-electron method (the full-potential LAPW method), this application uses a less number of bases keeping accuracy of calculation, and realize high-speed electronic state calculation by the density functional method. This application also supports calculation for disordered structures by coherent potential approximation (CPA), relativistic effect, and the LSDA+U method.
