ABACUS: Test for Crystal Viewer Tool
04 Aug 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The objective of this test is to give an idea to a self-learning students or to instructors in the case this test is used in a classroom the level of understanding of this topic when students have gone through the learning material, worked exercises and have completed the assignments and the...
ABINIT: First-Time User Guide
09 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Benjamin P Haley
This first-time user guide provides an introduction to using ABINIT on nanoHUB. We include a very brief summary of Density Functional Theory along with a tour of the Rappture interface. We discuss the default simulation (what happens if you don't change any inputs, and just hit "simulate") as...

Band Structure Lab Demonstration: Bulk Strain
03 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
This video shows an electronic structure calculation of bulk Si using Band Structure Lab. Several powerful features of this tool are demonstrated.
09 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
A fullerene is any molecule composed entirely of carbon, and can take the form of hollow spheres, ellipsoids, or tubes. Spherical fullerenes (often referred to as "buckyballs") are one of the known structurally different form of carbon. C60 are the most common of buckyball structures. …
Carrier Statistics Lab: First-Time User Guide

Crystal Directions and Miller Indices
04 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: David K. Ferry, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Miller indices are a notation system in crystallography for planes and directions in crystal lattices. In particular, a family of lattice planes is determined by three integers, l, m, and n, the Miller indices. They are written (lmn) and denote planes orthogonal to a direction (l,m,n) in the...

This set of lecture notes describe crystalline structure and different types of crystal lattices.
In mineralogy and crystallography, a crystal structure is a unique arrangement of atoms in a crystal. A crystal structure is composed of a basis, a set of atoms arranged in a particular way, and a lattice. The basis is located upon the points of a lattice spanned by lattice vectors, which is an...
Crystal Structures - Packing Efficiency Exercise
14 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Consider the most efficient way of packing together equal-sized spheres and stacking close-packed atomic planes in three dimensions. For example, if plane A lies beneath plane B, there are two possible ways of placing an additional atom on top of layer B. If an additional layer was placed...
Crystal Viewer Demonstration: Bravais Lattices

Crystal Viewer Demonstration: Various Crystal Systems
This video shows the use of the Crystal Viewer Tool to visualize several crystal systems, including Si, GaAs, C60 Buckyball, and a carbon nanotube. Crystal systems are rotated in 3D, zoomed in and out, and the lattice style changes from sticks and balls to lines to spheres.
Crystal Viewer Lab Exercise
28 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck, Parijat Sengupta, Dragica Vasileska
A central problem in the investigation of material properties involves the examination of the underlying blocks that aggregate to form macroscopic bodies. These underlying blocs own a definite arrangement that is repeated in three dimensions to give the crystal structure. We will try to explore...
