Abstract: A semi-empirical interatomic potential for the post-transition metal, bismuth, is developed based on the second nearest-neighbor modified embedded-atom method (MEAM). The potential reproduces a range of physical properties, such as the lattice constant, cohesive energy, elastic constants, vacancy formation energy, surface energy, and the melting point of pure bismuth. The calculations are done for the rhombohedral ground state of Bi. The results show good agreement with density functional theory and experimental data. The developed MEAM potential for bismuth is useful for material and mechanical behavior studies of the pure material at different conditions and sets the stage for the development of interatomic potentials for bismuth alloys or other bismuth compounds.

Notes: This is the Bi interaction from the "Universal" parameterization for the openKIM LennardJones612 model driver.The parameterization uses a shifted cutoff so that all interactions have a continuous energy function at the cutoff radius. This model was automatically fit using Lorentz-Berthelotmixing rules. It reproduces the dimer equilibrium separation (covalent radii) and the bond dissociation energies. It has not been fitted to other physical properties and its ability to model structures other than dimers is unknown. See the README and params files on the KIM model page for more details.
