pymatgen-diffusion 2018.1.4

Add-on to pymatgen for diffusion analysis.

Package Documentation

Pymatgen-diffusion

This is an add-on to pymatgen for diffusion analysis that is developed by the Materials Virtual Lab. Note that it relies on pymatgen for structural manipulations, file io, and preliminary analyses. In particular, pymatgen’s DiffusionAnalyzer is used heavily. The purpose of this add-on is to provide other diffusion analyses, using trajectories extracted using the DiffusionAnalyzer class.

This is, and will always be, a scientific work in progress. Pls check back for more details.

Features (non-exhaustive!)

  1. Van-Hove analysis
  2. Probability density
  3. Clustering (e.g., k-means with periodic boundary conditions).
  4. Migration path finding and IDPP.
