In this 12th video tip of the week, Ole shows how to use the auto correlation functions available within AMSmovie to calculate the viscosity via the Green-Kubo relation. The video is based on the tutorial...

AMS polymer builder: Generating periodic polymer structures (video tip of the week)

In this 11th video tip of the week, Ole talks about to take molecular structures generated by the polymer builder and pack them into a periodic box for property estimation such as the glass transition...

MRS Spring Meeting: 8-13 May

Drop by booth 110 at the MRS Spring Meeting in Honolulu to talk to Fedor about your materials research & development challenges! Whether you develop OLEDs, batteries, polymers, catalysts, or other materials, the Amsterdam Modeling...

Performance of GFN1-xTB for periodic optimization of Metal Organic Frameworks

High throughput computational screening of Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) has typically relied on either general force fields that lack accurate non-bonded interactions making adsorption studies impossible, or element-specific force fields that make wide-ranging predictive studies...

Understanding biological matrix composites using ReaxFF Simulations

Sustainable composite materials are becoming more sought after and especially the development of novel degradable biocomposites from biological matter is a promising pathway to answering the increasing global demand for sustainable materials. Roumeli et al....

Molecular Dynamics Thermostats (video tip of the week)

In this 10th video tip of the week, Ole talks about the two thermostats in the AMS MD driver and gives pointers on which thermostat to use and how to set the damping constants.

The ReaxFF parametrization challenge (video tip of the week)

In this 8th video tip of the week, Ole introduces the ParAMS ReaxFF parametrization challenge. Take a look at the release notes of AMS2022 and the new ParAMS tutorials to see how ParAMS can help...

Accurate ionization potentials and electron affinities with qsGW (video tip of the week)

In this seventh video tip of the week, Ole showcases how to use the new qsGW code in ADF to accurately predict ionization energies without the need to search for a suitable functional. The video...
