DFTB – Why DFTB? – Basic theory DFTB – Performance DFTB+ in Materials Studio – Energy, Geometry, Dynamics, Parameterization – Parameterization Basic theory Setting up a parameterization Outline

3
Why DFTB+

4
DFT codes are good for small systems Nano structures and bio molecules are often too large for DFT but their electronic properties are still of interest – hence quantum mechanical description is needed. Classical force field based codes can handle large systems but are missing the QM part Empirical TB has been applied to systems up to a few million atoms – No charge self consistency – Limited transferability – Using simplified energetic expressions QM vs. CM

5
DFTB merges the reliability of DFT with the computational efficiency of TB – Parameters are based on an atomic basis – The parameters can be made transferable – Charge self consistent – Describes both electronic as well as energetic properties – Can handle thousands of atoms This is where DFTB+ comes in

6
Examples of what can be done with DFTB+ Diamond nucleation Novel SiCN ceramicsSi cluster growth Magnetic Fe clustersWS2 nanotubes

7
Basic DFTB Theory

8
DFTB – Pseudo atomic orbital basis – Non SCC Hamiltonian elements are parameterized – 2 nd order charge self consistent theory – Charges are treated as Mulliken charges – Short range potential is used to correct the energetics – Hamiltonian matrix is sparse and can partly be treated with O(N) methods DFTB theory in short

9
Minimal basis set Pseudo atomic orbitals – Slater orbitals – Spherical harmonics DFTB basis set

DFTB+ Performance

17
Performance figures N 2.9 N x10 CNT 32 atoms/unitcell Run on single core Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.00GHz Small systems (<300 atoms) O(N) processes dominate Large systems (>300) O(n) eigenvalue solver dominates Around 100 times faster then normal DFT

18
DFTB+ in Materials Studio 6.0

19
First official release that includes the DFTB+ module Supported tasks – Energy – Geometry optimization – Dynamics – Parameterization Also support – Dispersion correction – Spin unrestricted calculations DFTB+ in Materials Studio 6.0

20
Slater-Koster libraries instead of DFT Functionals – CH, CHNO and SiGeH What if I don’t have the needed library? – Download academic libraries at mio, C-H-N-O-S-P pbc, Si-F-O-N-H|Fe matsci, various parameters – Make your own Starting a DFTB+ job

21
Need to register to get access. The downloaded parameters will contain many different Slater Koster files Downloading parameters To be used in MS-DFTB+ the parameters need to be packed up in a.skflib format. The.skflib file is just a tagged concatenation of the different files [Begin section] [End section], surrounds list of all files [Begin file ] [End file ], surrounds content of file. Will prevent accidental mixing of files between libraries and makes handling easier

22
Band structure Density of states Electron density Fermi surface Orbitals Slater-Koster parameters Dynamics analysis is done using the Forcite analysis tools DFTB+ Analysis

23
Materials Studio 6.0 Parameterization tool

24
DFTB+ depends on parameters – Hamiltonian and overlap integrals – Hubbard terms (orbital resolved) – Spin constants – Wave function coefficients – Short range repulsive potential The DFTB+ Parameterization Tool The DFTB+ parameterization tool enables you to make your own parameterizations. It calculates all of the needed parameters. The result is packed up in a single file (.skflib)

25
Repulsive fitting The remaining terms, E rep, will be described using fitted repulsive pair potentials. The pair potentials are fitted against a basis of cutoff polynomials Pair potentials

26
Short range pair potentials are fitted against small molecules or solids Path generators – Stretch, Perturb, Scale, Trajectory Fitting against Energy and optionally forces Use of spin unrestricted calculations Steps, weights and width are set under Details... Systems

27
Bond order fitting Use weight distributions to combine several bond orders into a single potential fit

28
