Computes dispersion curves and density of states of bulk silicon and silicon nanostructures.

Energy quanta of lattice vibrations (phonons) of silicon structures are characterized by their wave vectors and frequency. Using the Environment-Dependent Interatomic Potential (EDIP) under the harmonic approximation, this application computes dispersion curves (curves of frequency vs. wave vector module) for a given crystallographic direction, and density of states or DOS (number of available states per unit volume at a given frequency per unit frequency interval).

Welcome to the app-disperse development area. This project is for people actively developing source code and documentation for this tool.

  • GettingStarted - learn how to download the current code and make changes
  • TicketSystem - use trouble tickets to report problems and document ideas for future development
