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.

Notes: This file was generated by C.A. Becker from the files sent by X.W. Zhou (Sandia National Laboratory) and posted with his permission. These files can be used to generate alloy potentials for Cu, Ag, Au, Ni, Pd, Pt, Al, Pb, Fe, Mo, Ta, W, Mg, Co, Ti, and Zr by editing EAM.input. However, as addressed in the reference, these potentials were not designed for use with metal compounds. See the Zhou04 page for more information.

Notes: ptu6.txt was obtained from http://enpub.fulton.asu.edu/cms/ potentials/main/main.htm and posted with the permission of J.B. Adams. The name of the file was retained, even though the header information lists the potential as 'universal 4.' This file is compatible with the "pair_style eam" format in LAMMPS (19Feb09 version).
