If write_lammps is set to 1 in the parameter file, a potential in the LAMMPS eam/alloy (DYNAMO multi-element setfl format) format will be written in the postprocessing stage of potfit.

Currently this option only supports EAM and ADP potentials.

The name of the LAMMPS potential file is


e.g. MgZn.lammps.EAM for a Mg-Zn eam potential.

To use this potential in LAMMPS, put these commands in the input file:

pair_style eam/alloy
pair_coeff * * MgZn.lammps.eam Mg Zn
