ADF is a powerful computational chemistry package for studying nanoparticles, in particular optical properties, due to efficient and accurate treatment of relativity as well as making full use of symmetry. Advanced methods are available for environments and multi-level calculations.
With DFT, DFTB, and reactive MD tools, nanoscientists can study plasmon effects, quantum dots, surface enhanced Raman (SERS), nanoparticle aggregation, catalysis by nanoparticle and many more properties.
