The two band EAM potentials are an extension to the regular EAM potentials. Instead of single transfer and embedding functions, different functions to model two bands are used. Usually they are reffered to as d- and s-band contributions.

$$E_\text{total}=\frac{1}{2}\sum_{i<j}^N\Phi_{ij}(r_{ij})+\sum_iF_i^d(n_i^d)+\sum_iF_i^s(n_i^s)$$ where $$n^d_i=\sum_{j\neq i}\rho^d_j(r_{ij}) \qquad \text{and} \qquad n^s_i=\sum_{j\neq i}\rho^s_j(r_{ij})$$

To describe a system with $N$ atom types you need $N(N+9)/2$ potentials.

# atom types | $\Phi_{ij}$ | $\rho^d_j$ | $F^d_i$ | $\rho^s_j$ | $F^s_i$ | Total # potentials |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

$N$ | $N(N+1)/2$ | $N$ | $N$ | $N$ | $N$ | $N(N+9)/2$ |

1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 5 |

2 | 3 | 2 | 2 | 2 | 2 | 11 |

3 | 6 | 3 | 3 | 3 | 3 | 18 |

4 | 10 | 4 | 4 | 4 | 4 | 26 |

The potential table is assumed to be symmetric, i.e. the potential for the atom types 1-0 is the same as the potential 0-1.

The order of the TBEAM potentials in the potential file for *N* atom types is:

$\Phi_{00}, \ldots, \Phi_{0N}, \Phi_{11}, \ldots, \Phi_{1N}, \ldots, \Phi_{NN},$

$\rho^d_0, \ldots, \rho^d_N,$

$F^d_0, \ldots, F^d_N,$

$\rho^s_0, \ldots, \rho^s_N,$

$F^s_0, \ldots, F^s_N,$

Tabulated two band EAM potentials require the embedding function $F_i$ to be defined at a density of $1.0$. This is necessary to fix the gauge degrees of freedom.
