Welcome to phonopy#
Phonopy is an open source package for phonon calculations at harmonic and quasi-harmonic levels.
Phono3py is another open source package for phonon-phonon interaction and lattice thermal conductivity calculations. See the documentation at http://phonopy.github.io/phono3py/
Phonon database: A collection of first principles phonon calculations is available as open data at http://phonondb.mtl.kyoto-u.ac.jp/ , where the raw data of phonopy & VASP results are downloaded.
The following features of phonopy are highlighted:
Phonon thermal properties: Free energy, heat capacity (Cv), and entropy
Non-analytical-term correction: LO-TO splitting (Born effective charges and dielectric constant are required.)
Quasi-harmonic approximation: Thermal expansion, heat capacity at constant pressure (Cp)
Interfaces to calculators: VASP, VASP DFPT, ABINIT, Quantu ESPRESSO, SIESTA, Elk, WIEN2k, CRYSTAL, DFTB+, TURBOMOLE, CP2K, FHI-aims, CASTEP, Fleur, LAMMPS (external)
