RMCProfile

Developer / company: Information is not available

RMCProfile is an extension of RMCA specifically for the study of disordered crystalline materials, although some of the new features may also be useful for studying amorphous materials. The main features are: fitting the Bragg profile directly; the incorporation of data based polyhedral constraints; swap moves for studying systems with site disordered - such as cation disorder or vacancies; and now magnetic structures can also be modelled.

In addition to a new program there is also a new methodology, which aims to supply the RMC algorithm with as much information as possible to ensure a physically sensible model. To this end you should aim to use RMCProfile to fit all aspects of the data simultaneously, i.e. the structure factor F(Q), the radial distribution function G(r) and the Bragg profile all at the same time. In this way the atomic configuration that RMCProfile produces will be consistent with the long and short range order information contained in the data; and be a true holistic representation of the structure.

As with any RMC method the configuration of atoms produced is not unique. This is not surprising when you consider we are using a model with ~104 atoms to describe a sample that contains of the order 1023 atoms. If the fit is consistent with all the data available then the configuration will have the characteristic of the sample being studied, and can be considered to be a snapshot in time of the atom positions. If RMCProfile is run again from scratch or for a length of time at equilibrium, then a different snapshot will be produced, where the atoms will have moved but within the constraints of the data being fitted. Many configurations should be collected to ensure a local false minimum has not be arrived at, as could be the case if the weighting of the data is not suitable. If the true minimum has been achieved then collecting many configurations can be a powerful tool for extracting the maximum amount of information for what is essentially a 1D powder technique. Recently this technique has even been used to extract dynamical information from the static RMCProfile snapshots.

The aim of this manual is to explain the practical issues of how to run the program and the various files you need and how to format them. For now there is no theory section, but the program is based on the RMCA code, so please read the RMCA manual for the theoretical background of the RMC method.

RMCProfile works with the following file extensions:

Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
