The SCM team is proud to introduce the 2020 release of the Amsterdam Modeling Suite: AMS2020. We are grateful to our external developers and collaborators across the globe. See below for a list of selected changes in AMS2020 per module.
Our molecular DFT code ADF is now fully integrated with the AMS driver. This enables you to more easily and efficiently explore potential energy surfaces, for example to find transition states (see video). Now it is also easier to screen molecules for desired properties and to set up workflows across different methods.
Researchers can perform a larger variety of multi-layer calculations for molecules as well as for periodic systems with the new hybrid engine. Any quantum mechanics and force field-based methods can be combined in any number of layers with mechanical embedding through a subtractive scheme. Electrostatic embedding through additive QM/MM is available for 2-layer systems with ADF, BAND or DFTB as the quantum mechanical region.
Explore conformers, reaction energies, and potential energy surfaces with fast and accurate high-dimensional neural network potentials (HDNNPs) ANI-1ccx and ANI-2x or use your own machine learning potentials.
The central AMS driver has several new analysis tools, improvements in the MD driver and geometry optimizer, enabling them for all atomistic engines in the Amsterdam Modeling Suite. COSMO-RS can now deal with conformers, multiple protonation states and explicit solvent coordination.
