Note that elemental potentials taken from alloy descriptions may not work well for the pure species. This is particularly true if the elements were fit for compounds instead of being optimized separately. As with all interatomic potentials, please check to make sure that the performance is adequate for your problem.

"The Nb.eam.alloy file is in the setfl format suitable for the LAMMPS MD code. This format requires r*phi and rho to be tabulated from r = 0 to r = r_cut. The domain of phi and rho in the published potential is 1.738 ≤ r ≤ 4.75 A. For phi, we extend the cubic polynomial for 1.738 ≤ r ≤ 2.073 A to r = 0. For rho, we linearly extrapolate from r = 1.738 A to r = 0.
The potential in the IMD format is tabulated with 5,001 points for each function. The potential in the LAMMPS setfl format is tabulated with 10,001 points for each function. Comparisons of the two tabulations show very slight differences in some defect energies, probably due to the different numbers of tabulation points."
