### Parameter sets¶

#### QUASINANO2013.1¶

The DFTB parameter files in $AMSHOME/atomicdata/DFTB/QUASINANO2013.1 are distributed with the AMS package. These are parameters only for the electronic part of the DFTB method that covers almost the complete periodic table (no f-elements). No forces can be calculated. These parameters can be used in TDDFTB calculations, for example.

### QUASINANO2015¶

The DFTB parameter files in $AMSHOME/atomicdata/DFTB/QUASINANO2015 are distributed with the AMS package. The QUASINANO2015 parameter set extends the QUASINANO2013.1 parameter set, and includes terms that are needed to compute the total energy and its gradient.
