[lammps-users] Dipole Question

Dear fellows,

I am Rachel. I am new to LAMMPS.

I am simulating the structural formation of electrical dipole particles under an
electric filed. I am confused whether Dipole package in LAMMPS have the function
to simulate the dipoles movement under an applied electric field. Help me! Would
you give me some tips?

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated!

There is a fix efield command but it only acts on
atoms with point charges. It would have to be enhanced
to induce force/torque on point dipoles. If you can write
C++ code, it would be easy to do - I suggest you take a look
at the source code for that command.
