User-friendly atomic-scale modeling
Virtual NanoLab (VNL) is the user-friendly graphical interface where you design atomic configurations and generate input scripts using interactive tools. VNL is fully integrated with NanoLanguage and even supports drag-and-drop of Python code for maximal flexibility and interoperability.
* Build complex structures (molecules, periodic systems, and transport systems) with a few mouse clicks
* Generate NanoLanguage scripts ready to be executed by ATK
* Visualize atomic geometries and calculated physical quantities in 3D
Atomic-scale modeling is indispensable when it comes to simulating
experiments and analyzing atomic-scale properties of nanoscale devices.
The functionality of a nanoscale device is largely determined by the
positions of individual atoms. It might change drastically if some atoms
are replaced, added, or removed. Atomic-scale modeling makes you
understand why your device works. Or why it doesn.t work!
Virtual NanoLab is based on Atomistix ToolKit (ATK) and gives access to
state-of-the-art modeling techniques, including non-equilibrium Green.s
function and density-functional-theory (DFT) methods. With automatic
script generation these techniques are simple and intuitive to use
whether or not you are an expert in quantum chemistry and
Compared with physical experiments, nanoscale modeling is cheap and
efficient. Using modeling prior to, or in combination with, practical
laboratory work accelerates the development by limiting the
time-consuming trial-and-error experimentation. Possible problems can be
detected and solved before the device is even fabricated.
