Generate crystal models in a few clicks. Describe unit cells, import CIF files, model defects and impurities. Cut crystals.

This SAMSON Element makes it possible to generate crystal models in a few clicks.

Create crystal models from scratch

The contained app lets you create crystal models from scratch:

Cut crystals

The associated property model makes it possible to cut the crystal according to Miller indices and expose the important crystal planes:

Import crystal models

Finally, this SAMSON Element contains an importer to read CIF files.

Once a unit cell is written or imported, it can be repeated in the directions of the lattice vectors to create a complete crystal.

Each repetition is not a mere copy but is generated again so that defects and impurities are modeled:

What's new

  • 0.7.6: Importer for cif files: added possibility to create bonds from the file (_geom_bond* fields).
  • 0.7.5: Importer for cif files: taking care of _atom_site_disorder_group and _atom_site_disorder_assembly fields.
  • 0.7.4: Bug fixes.
  • 0.7.3: Choice of the seed for generating crystals.
