What CAT can do for you

  • Offers interface to ADF and CP2K
  • Build automatically the ligand-core geometry for a given ligand-quantum dot pair
  • Optimize automatically the ligand
  • Compute quantum chemistry properties for the ligand
  • Allows to provide the configuration input as a YAML file
  • Stores the results in a HDF5 file

For a more detailed description of the CAT compound builder read the documentation. The documentation is divided into three parts: The basics, further details about the input cores and ligands and finally a more detailed look into the customization of the various jobs.
