We use a variety of commercial and open source software for our research. Below is a list of software that is useful for a variety of tasks.
Crystal Structure Rendering
Notes: Render crystal structures as atomistic models and also whole (facteted) nanoparticles. Calculate powder x-ray diffraction profiles, with other functions.
Commercial (free renewable 1 year academic licenses available to active students and faculty)
Notes: 3D design application for creating models for 3D printing. Also use to make images for publications (e.g., 3D concept figures).
