• Sep 14, 2022 - Exchange-hole dipole moment (XDM) dispersion model in FHI-aims
    Alberto Otero de la Rosa, Alastair Price and Erin Johnson added support for the XDM method (and the B86bPBE functionals) to the mainline version of FHI-aims, for accurate, affordable dispersion corrected DFT for molecules & solids and particularly molecular crystals.
  • Jul 28, 2022 - CC-aims: An interface for FHI-aims to Coupled Cluster for Solids (CC4S)
    Happy to announce the Evgeny Moerman published his interface CC-aims, recently. Congratualtions! All details about how to use this interface to perform a coupled cluster calculation for soldis can be found here:
