[ADF-LIST] surface modeling and surface energy of polymer

Dear user,

We do not have automatic tools to increase the periodicity.

One possible approach is to start from the (1D periodic) polymer and then simply set (in the GUI) the periodicity to “slab”. You can play around with the second lattice vector, till you get something looking ‘reasonable’. Then you can optimize the resulting slab geometry, including lattice optimization. Most likely you want to use a dispersion correction, so something like pbe-d3.

At the moment I do not have a clear understanding about how to calculate the surface energy of polymers. 

Best regards, Pier
