Title
A single sentence description.
EDIP potential for Si-C developed by Lucas, Bertolus, and Pizzagalli (2009) v000
Description
A short description of the Model describing its key features including for example: type of model (pair potential, 3-body potential, EAM, etc.), modeled species (Ac, Ag, ..., Zr), intended purpose, origin, and so on.
An interatomic potential has been developed to describe interactions in silicon, carbon, and silicon carbide. This model generalizes the semi-empirical interatomic potential EDIP, initially designed for silicon (Bazant et al. 1997 Phys. Rev. B 56 8542), for modeling silicon carbide. In addition, the functional form of the original EDIP has been generalized, where all the parameters for Si–Si, C–C, and Si–C interactions are new. This potential has been tested for silicon, carbon (diamond), and silicon carbide for a wide range of properties, including bulk properties stability and structure of high-pressure crystalline phases, formation energy and point structure, extended defects, and amorphous phases structure. The proposed potential enables an accurate description of point and extended defects in silicon, diamond, and silicon carbide, thus preserving the initial focus of the original EDIP potential. An extra feature of this parameter set is the excellent description of the high-pressure phases of the different materials.

BCC Lattice Constant

This bar chart plot shows the mono-atomic body-centered cubic (bcc) lattice constant predicted by the current model (shown in the unique color) compared with the predictions for all other models in the OpenKIM Repository that support the species. The vertical bars show the average and standard deviation (one sigma) bounds for all model predictions. Graphs are generated for each species supported by the model.

Cohesive Energy Graph

This graph shows the cohesive energy versus volume-per-atom for the current mode for four mono-atomic cubic phases (body-centered cubic (bcc), face-centered cubic (fcc), simple cubic (sc), and diamond). The curve with the lowest minimum is the ground state of the crystal if stable. (The crystal structure is enforced in these calculations, so the phase may not be stable.) Graphs are generated for each species supported by the model.

Diamond Lattice Constant

This bar chart plot shows the mono-atomic face-centered diamond lattice constant predicted by the current model (shown in the unique color) compared with the predictions for all other models in the OpenKIM Repository that support the species. The vertical bars show the average and standard deviation (one sigma) bounds for all model predictions. Graphs are generated for each species supported by the model.

FCC Elastic Constants

This bar chart plot shows the mono-atomic face-centered cubic (fcc) elastic constants predicted by the current model (shown in blue) compared with the predictions for all other models in the OpenKIM Repository that support the species.
