**DFTB+ in Materials Studio**

3
Why DFTB+

4
**QM vs. CM 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

5
**This is where DFTB+ comes in**

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

6
**Examples of what can be done with DFTB+**

Diamond nucleation Novel SiCN ceramics Si cluster growth Magnetic Fe clusters WS2 nanotubes

7
Basic DFTB Theory

8
**DFTB theory in short DFTB Pseudo atomic orbital basis**

Non SCC Hamiltonian elements are parameterized 2nd 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

9
**Pseudo atomic orbitals**

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

10
**Pseudo atomic orbitals**

Silicon sp3d5 orbitals S P1 P2 P3 D5 D4 D3 D2 D1 For Silicon the d-orbitals are un-occupied but needed to properly model the conduction band.

DFTB+ Performance

17
**Performance figures 10x10 CNT N2.9 N1.5 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
**DFTB+ in Materials Studio 6.0**

First official release that includes the DFTB+ module Supported tasks Energy Geometry optimization Dynamics Parameterization Also support Dispersion correction Spin unrestricted calculations

20
Starting a DFTB+ job 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

21
**Downloading parameters**

Need to register to get access. The downloaded parameters will contain many different Slater Koster files 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 <filename>] [End file <filename>], surrounds content of file. Will prevent accidental mixing of files between libraries and makes handling easier

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

23
**Materials Studio 6.0 Parameterization tool**

24
**The DFTB+ Parameterization Tool**

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 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, Erep, will be described using fitted repulsive pair potentials. Pair potentials The pair potentials are fitted against a basis of cutoff polynomials

26
Systems 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...

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

28
