Cams Libraries



To help researchers begin their computational studies, we have collected here links and notes to useful atomic modeling software and databases. Check back as tutorials are posted for these different software suites.

The range of available software is vast! If you would like to see links here to other software please post in the forum. If you have questions about one of available software systems listed here, you can find a link to a dedicated forum thread in its listing.


Phonon Transport Simulator

PhonTS is a lattice dynamics code that calculates thermal conductivity using the phonon Boltzmann Transport Equation. It has built in classical potentials and interfaces to other codes for external libraries of potentials or first principle electronic structure calculation.

Details and specifications:

  • Calculation: Lattice Dynamics
  • Processor type: Single or parallel.
  • License: Open source (GPL)
  • Authors: List of main authors
