Atomic Simulation Environment (ASE)

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

A set of python modules for modeling atomic structures, running simulations, and visualizing results. These modules provide interfaces for various application of first-principles calculation, classical molecular dynamics, and quantum chemical calculation through GUI, command line, or python scripts. The source code is available under the LGPL.

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.

Avogadro

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

An open-source application of molecular modeling/editing for quantum chemical calculation. This application supports graphical user interface (GUI) for input-file preparation for software of quantum chemical calculation such as GAMESS, Gaussian, etc., and displays their results by reading output files. It can also make movies in the formats of vector graphics, POV-Ray, and so on.

AVS/Express

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

A general-purpose application for visualization equipped with many display functions. By simple operation by a mouse, this application realizes various kinds of visualization such as positions and shapes of general objects, isosurfaces, volume rendering, and so on. It supports new display functions by making individual modules as well as making movies.
