OpenMX

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

OpenMX is a first-principles software based on the pseudo-atomic localized basis functions. It calculates electronic structure rapidly for a wide range of materials including crystals, interfaces, liquids, etc. It speedily provides molecular dynamics simulation and structural optimization of large-scale systems and also implements a hybrid parallelism. It is able to deal with non-collinear magnetism and non-equilibrium Green’s function calculations for electrical conductions.

FPMS

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

An application for analysis of X-ray resonant spectroscopy. By employing the multiple scattering theory, this application can predict spectra of X-ray absorption fine structure (XANES) accurately. This application can obtain good results even for systems such as K-edge of Si and L-edge of SiO2, where conventional muffin-tin approximation fails. Output files of VASP can be used.
