The purpose of this tool is to optimize a Silicon-Germanium superlattice structure to have the lowest possible thermal conductivity. The tool does this by using Molecular Dynamics as the simulation tool in conjunction with a genetic algorithm, treating each structure as an individual, and the individual layers as the chromosomes. Inputs for structure include materials one and two with their respective lattice constants, the number of layers in the structure, and the supercell dimensions n x n x 1 where n is chosen. Inputs for the genetic algorithm are number of generations, and number of populations.
Thank you to Shashi Adiga for writing the initial version of the tool.
