The number of files depends on the potential model. After the optimization, potfit writes the names of all files it creates to stdout, e.g.:
IMD pair potential written to imdpot_phi.imd.pt IMD transfer function written to imdpot_rho.imd.pt IMD embedding function written to imdpot_F.imd.pt
A single file with the name
is created. It contains all pair potentials.
In addition to the pair potential there is the transfer function in
and the embedding function in
All files from EAM will be created plus the dipole part in
and the quadrupole part in
Coulomb / Dipole
The electostatic interactions (including the non-electrostatic short-range part) are given by analytical potentials so far. A single file with the name
is created. It contains all required parameters. The contents of this file have to be copied into the IMD parameter file.
