NanoCap 1.0b12

Application and libraries for the generation of carbon fullerenes, nanotubes and capped nanotubes

Latest Version: 1.0b15

Copyright (c) 2014 M. Robinson

Introduction

NanoCap provides both libraries and a standalone application for the construction of capped nanotubes of arbitrarily chirality and fullerenes of any radius. Structures are generated by constructing a set of optimal dual graph topologies which are subsequently optimised using a carbon interatomic potential. Combining this approach with a GUI featuring 3D rendering capabilities allows for the rapid inspection of physically sensible structures which can be used as input for molecular simulation.

Requirements

NanoCap as a library with no GUI.

  • NumPy - Version 1.6.2
  • Scipy - Version 0.11.0
  • sqlite3 Version 2.6.0
  • C compiler (e.g. GCC)
  • Fortran compiler (e.g. GFortran)

NanoCap + GUI from source

  • Qt - Version 4.8.5
  • PySide - Version 1.1.1
  • VTK - Version 5.8
