Software Used



Elk is an all-electron full-potential linearized augmented-plane-wave (FP-LAPW) code for determining the properties of crystalline solids. It was developed originally at the Karl-Franzens-Universit¨at Graz as part of the EXCITING EU Research and Training Network project. The guiding philosophy during the implementation of the code was to keep it as simple as possible for both users and developers without compromising on its capabilities.

VESTA is a 3D visualization program for structural models, volumetric data such as electron/nuclear densities, and crystal morphologies. VESTA is a successor to two 3D visualization programs, VICS and VEND, in the VENUS (Visualization of Electron/NUclear and Structures) software package.
