Atomic Green Function 1-D atomic Chain simulation: Tool Information Page

Each tool on nanoHUB has an information page that provides a description of the tool, related resources, and credits. For example, this page describes the Quantum Dot Lab: http://www.nanohub.org/tools/qdot

As a first step toward building that page for your tool, edit this page and fill in the sections below.

At a Glance

This is a one-line description of your tool:

This simulation tool is using Atomstic Green's Function to calculate thermal properties of an atomic chain.

Description

Fill in a longer description (few paragraphs) about your tool here:

This simulation tool gives a general idea of an atomistic Green’s function (AGF) method. Phonon transmission function is provided in terms of Green’s functions and, using the transmission function, the heat flux integral is written in Landauer form. Within the theoretical framework of AGF, the required inputs to calculate heat flux are mass of atoms and an appropriate interatomic potential. Examples like homogeneous atomic chain and heterogeneous atomic chains can be included in the simulation.
