Title
A single sentence description.
LAMMPS Stillinger-Weber potential for the Ga-N system developed by Bere and Serra (2006) and implemented using the polymorphic framework of Zhou et al. (2015) v000
Description Results obtained by atomic computer simulation based on an adapted Stillinger-Weber (SW) potential concerning the structure and relative stability of lattice dislocations, tilt and twin boundaries in GaN are discussed. The method used for the search and description of all possible atomic configurations depends on the crystallographic structure; consequently it is of general application and the results are transferable to the wurtzite binary compounds. On the contrary, the relaxed structures and their relative energetic stability are potential dependent. The results presented here correspond to a GaN model described by a pair potential. Whenever it has been possible our results have been compared with experiments or with ab initio calculations. We present the core shape and energy of [a] and [c] crystal dislocations of both edge and screw character; [ 0001] tilt boundaries of misorientation angles from 9.3 degrees ( corresponding to Sigma 37) to theta = 44.8 degrees ( corresponding to Sigma 43) and (10-1n) twin boundaries ( n = 1, 2, 3) [ 1, 2, 3, 4]. The atomic structures of the tilt boundaries can be described in terms of the three stable structures of the prism [a]-edge dislocation core. The (10-13) twin boundary is entirely described by 6-coordinated channels whereas the other twin boundaries present more complex structural units.

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.
