Other features of the Amsterdam Modeling Suite

The AMS Driver

The powerful AMS Driver is integrated with the BAND, DFTB, MOPAC, and ReaxFF modules.
It helps you explore the potential energy surface of your system for molecules as well as periodic systems, for example through

All features (tasks and properties) can be applied to external programs as well.

Quantum ESPRESSO graphical user interface

The graphical user interface supports setting up, running, and visualizing results for the open-source periodic density functional theory code Quantum ESPRESSO (see tutorials), which uses plane-wave basis sets and pseudopotentials. The interface to Quantum ESPRESSO is provided at no extra charge.

VASP graphical user interface

Simple support is provided for the commercial VASP code. You need to provide your own binary and VASP license.
