Interactive Structure Analysis of Amorphous and Crystalline Systems

Interactive Structure Analysis of Amorphous and Crystalline Systems I.S.A.A.C.S. is a computer program dedicated to the study of the structural properties of 3D models of materials (liquid, glass, crystal) and isolated molecules generated using computer simulations. A wide number of calculations are available: * Radial Distribution Functions RDF (x-ray and neutron) o Neutrons and X-rays total RDFs o Partial RDFs o Bathia-Thornton RDFs [a] * Simulation of neutron and X-ray scattering Structure Factors o Total structure factors S(q) o Partial S(q): + Faber-Ziman [b] partial S(q) + Ashcroft-Langreth [c, d, e] partial S(q) + Bathia-Thornton [f] partial S(q) * Bond properties o Coordination numbers o Structural environments distribution o Bond lengths distribution for the first coordination sphere * Angles distribution o Bond angles distribution o Diehdral angles distribution * Ring statistics analysis o Choice on the chemical species used to initiate the search. o Possibilty to look only for ABAB rings. o Choice on the nature of the rings to look for: + All closed paths in the box + King's rings [g, h] + Guttman's rings [i] + Primitive rings [j, k, l]. + Strong rings [k]. * Spherical harmonics as local order parameter o Average for each chemical species o Average for a user-specified structural environment * Bond valence o Average for each chemical species o Average for a user-specified structural environment * Mean Square Displacement MSD o Atomic species MSD o Directional MSD (x, y, z, xy, xz, yz) o Drift of the center of mass a P.
