Open-source tools and a database for molecular simulation. Data of molecular models (interatomic potentials and force fields), result data of molecular simulation, and test tools can be downloaded freely. API (Application Programming Interface) for exchanging information between atomistic simulation codes and interatomic models is also provided.
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.
An open-source application for the phase-field simulations. This application treats many kinds of problems in materials science such as determination of phase diagrams, crystal growing, small structures accompanied by first-order transition, and so on. Its source code is open under the GPL, and is developed putting emphasis on its flexibility in the C++ language.
An open-source application of semi-empirical/ab-initio quantum chemical calculation that comes under an academic license. It performs various quantum chemical calculations based on Hartree-Fock theory, density functional theory, and configuration interaction theory, yielding electronic states and enabling structure optimization and molecular spectrum analysis. Molecular dynamics calculation based on the QM/MM method is also possible by using this software in combination with GROMACS.
An open-source application for first-principles calculation utilizing pseudo-potentials and plane-wave basis sets. This application is capable of performing electronic structure calculations of a wide range of physical systems such as crystals and surfaces/interfaces. It supports structure relaxation, phonon-dispersion calculation, and molecular dynamics simulation, and can deal with systems with the spin-orbit interaction.
An open-source application for visualization of atoms and molecules developed for molecular dynamics. This application supports a number of input file formats for molecular configration, and can perform visualization of three-dimensional atom configration as well as creation of a animation. The main feature of this application is that various useful analysis tools can be used by intuitive control of a graphical user interface (GUI).
