During this webinar, discover the following new features and functionalities of QuantumATK P-2019.03:

  • The Projector-Augmented Wave (PAW) method (beta version), which significantly speeds up DFT-PlaneWave simulations
  • Improvements for the hybrid HSE06 functional, enabling noncollinear spin and spin-orbit calculations
  • Recently developed SCAN functional for both DFT-LCAO and DFT-PlaneWave calculators
  • Time-stamped force-bias Monte Carlo, which makes 5-100 times longer simulations times available
  • Entirely new completely customizable Script Generator layout for setting up simulations
  • Improved and new Study Object frameworks to perform complex tasks:
    • New Magnetic Anisotropy Energy Study Object framework
    • Upgraded Charged Point Defect Study Object framework, enabling now also simulations of defect clusters
    • Improved Optimize Device Configuration Study Object with restart functionality
  • Performance improvements for periodic and device (with Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function method) DFT simulations
  • MPI parallelization of ForceField, enabling parallel MD simulations over many compute nodes 
  • Enhanced 2D plot framework for advanced editing of plots, measuring, combining, and reusing
  • Industry-Standard Python 3 environment in QuantumATK
  • And more new exciting features!
