A crystallographic tool for the construction of nanoparticles

This tool constructs nanoparticles for simulation of any material given as input the crystal structure, the size of the nanoparticle, and the preferred growing planes and energies. As a result you have the choice to download the coordinates of the atoms in a .xyz file and a .pdb file. For more information please read our paper or the manual

Add new Miller indices and energy  

Choose maximum radius of nanoparticle in (Å) :

If you need a maximum radius more than 250 Å for your nanopartie, please contact us.

Check this box to include oxygen atoms that form coordination polyhedra :
