Links to other resources
Here are some links to some other resources for interatomic potentials (forcefields) or their testing. We welcome suggestions for links to include, and this list is not complete. If you have questions about these efforts, please ask the people affiliated with those projects. Note that we do not have control over the content of these sites and can thus make no statements about them. We provide these links for the convenience of our users. Also note that NIST does not endorse any commercial products.
- Byeong-Joo Lee's page for 2NN MEAM potentials. The site includes a list of materials systems for which at least one 2NN MEAM potential has been developed. It also includes information on using the potentials with KISSMD (Kinetic Simulation System based on Molecular Dynamics) and LAMMPS.
- Howard Sheng's page for EAM potentials
- Knowledgebase of Interatomic Models (KIM): an "interactive, self-extending, database of interatomic models, self-contained simulation codes that test the predictions of these models, and reference data."
