Join us for a webinar to discover how to perform accurate and reliable density functional theory (DFT) simulations with the QuantumATK platform:

  • See in action how easy it is to perform DFT simulations using NanoLab GUI in QuantumATK: build structures, access databases, set up calculations, submit and run jobs, visualize and analyze results using advanced post-processing capabilities, and prepare high quality figures for your publications.
  • Learn how to perform accurate and reliable DFT simulations by optimizing geometry, considering methods for obtaining accurate band gaps, and converging electronic structure properties with respect to the number of k-points, density mesh cut-off, pseudopotentials, and basis sets.
  • Discover how you could benefit from being able to shift seamlessly from LCAO basis sets (DFT-LCAO) to plane-wave basis sets (DFT-PlaneWave) within one framework, and, thus, easily adjust and test tradeoffs between speed and accuracy.
  • Find out which systems (crystalline, amorphous materials, surfaces, interfaces, devices, etc.) and which material properties could be simulated with DFT in QuantumATK.
