This tool reads in LAMMPS trajectories and performs the following analysis:

  • Radial Distribution Function (RDF)
  • X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • Vibrational Density of States
  • (More to Come!)

By default the tool requires trajectory files to be input by the user however there are some example files for reference. Users can also provide Dropbox links for large files.
