PyProcar

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

A python library for pre- and post-processing of first-principles electronic structure calculations. As a pre-processing tool, it can automatically generate k-point pathways for first-principles calculations of band structures based on the crystal symmetry. It can also post-process first-principles calculation results to generate band structure and density of states plots with atomic species and orbital contributions, or visualize spin textures and Fermi surfaces. It also provides a functionality for band unfolding.

pacemaker

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

Software tool for constructing interatomic potentials based on nonlinear atomic cluster expansion. It requires the user to either prepare a fitting dataset based on pandas and ASE, or it can automatically extract data from VASP calculation results. The obtained potentials can be used for molecular dynamics simulations using LAMMPS, and it also provides the capability to calculate extrapolation grades for on-the-fly active learning.
