Hotbit is an ASE density-functional tight-binding calculator that aims to provide

  • an open-source DFTB code
  • a handy companion for DFT (for easy & fast electronic structure analysis, for quick access to dynamical properties for testing, and for playing around)
  • a compact and accessible code for everyone to inspect and modify (avoiding parallelization implies that the code is less suitable for large systems)
  • an intuitive user interface (ideal for learning and teaching realistic electronic structure simulations)
