atsim.potentials is developed and maintained by Michael Rushton. It was intially developed to support the activities of the Atomistic Simulation Group located in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London. Thanks go to Prof. Robin Grimes and the rest of the group. Particular thanks must goes to:

  • Michael Cooper who helped test and debug the Embedded Atom Method tabulation methods whilst we developed our actinide potential model for the following:

    • M.W.D. Cooper, M.J.D. Rushton and R. W. Grimes, “A many-body potential approach to modelling the thermomechanical properties of actinide oxides”, J. Phys. Condens. Matter, 2014 26 105401. doi:10.1088/0953-8984/26/10/105401
  • Dr. Clare Bishop for providing an early implementation of the spline interpolation method implemented within SplinePotential.
