Rebo Potential for Si-C-H

Dear lammps-users,

I would like to ask if the potential described in this paper:

“Reactive Bond-Order Potential for Si‑, C‑, and H‑Containing Materials”
J. Phys. Chem. C 2013, 117, 1323−1334

has already been implemented or tested for Lammps. I’m trying to simulate
a system containing Si-C-H but mixing different bond-order potentials such Tersoff and Rebo is not a good idea. I’m wondering if someone has the potential file describe in the above paper. Any help is very much appreciated.

If nobody has the potential file available, I would suggest you contact the authors of the paper. If that is not available, you will have to create one.


The author has certainly posted in this forum before. Furthermore you may want to follow up on this thread as looks like there was indeed a plan to port the potential (hope that is the one you are referring to) into lammps, see:
