[lammps-users] Interatomic Potentials for Download

Dear LAMMPS users,

I am writing to let you know about a repository of interatomic potentials for download that is located at http://www.ctcms.nist.gov/potentials/.

This website has a number of interatomic potentials in various formats for elements and alloys, many compatible with LAMMPS. The files are posted with references and information about their sources. Most of the files were contributed by their developers, with Mikhail Mendelev's newest LAMMPS-compatible alloy potentials as the latest additions.

While the site has initially focused on Embedded-Atom Method and Finnis-Sinclair metals, we are expanding to include other formats and types of materials (e.g. ceramics and/or polymers). If you would like to distribute your interatomic potentials through the website, we would like to work with you to include them. For that, please email me directly rather than the LAMMPS list.
