Cambridge Structure Database (CSD)

A fee-charging structure database of organic materials crystal structures. Three-dimensional structure data of small molecules and metal-organic crystals determined by the X-ray diffraction measurement can be downloaded. The data are compiled and distributed by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC).

CONQUEST

  • Level of openness 1 ★☆☆
  • Document quality 1 ★☆☆

CONQUEST is a linear-scaling DFT (Density Functional Theory) code based on the density matrix minimization method. Since its computational cost, for both memory and computational costs, is only proportional to the number of atoms N of the target systems, the code can employ structure optimization or molecular dynamics on very large-scale systems, including more than hundreds of thousands of atoms. It also has high parallel efficiency and is suitable for massively parallel calculations.

CTM4XAS

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

An application for X-ray spectroscopy analysis based on atomic multiple-state calculation. This application performs multiplet calculation for transition-metal and rare-earth elements by taking into account effect of crystal fields and charge transfer, and can determine physical parameters by comparison between theory and experimental data via fitting. It implements useful graphical user interface(GUI), realizing intuitive operation.

Calypso

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

An application for prediction of stable and metastable structures from a chemical composition. This application applies particle swarm optimization to predict material structures from results of the first-principles calculation by external packages (VASP, CASTEP, Quantum Espresso, GULP, SIESTA, CP2k). It has been applied to predict not only three-dimensional crystal structures, but also those of clusters and surfaces.
