Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Analysis Objects Updates

  • Updated plane-wave calculator with PAW+HSE and significantly improved performance
  • Extremely efficient HSE band structure calculations using a k·p expansion method
  • Wide range of new optical and electrooptical analysis tools, including Raman spectrum, intraband contribution, polar LO/TO splitting, second order susceptibility, and infrared spectroscopy
  • Gilbert damping simulations describing spin dynamics of magnetic systems

Dynamics Updates

  • Added possibility to record “measurements” at high frequency during molecular dynamics (MD), and other improvements to plotting MD trajectories
  • Greatly improved parallel scaling of force-field potentials to speed up large-scale MD simulations
  • Advanced tools for building and equilibrating polymer melts, calculating thermo-mechanical and other properties for polymer engineering

NanoLab GUI Updates

  • Upgraded move tool in the Builder
  • Enhanced 2D plotting framework
  • Improved Job Manager layout and possibility to submit multiple jobs using specific job settings
  • New Report generator tool for easily extracting, analyzing, and plotting data obtained from a large number of simulations
