"Screening of the alkali-metal ion containing materials from the Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD) for high ionic conductivity pathways using the bond valence method", M. Avdeev, M. Sale, S. Adams, R.P. Rao, Solid State Ionics 225 (2012) 43-46
3DBVSMAPPER is a program that generates bond-valence sum maps and bond-valence energy landscapes to identify ion-conduction pathways for a given test ion species. It uses the application programming interface provided with Materials Studio and the Perl language. The program currently requires Materials Studio from Accelrys; please email us if this is not available to you. Also, please send any comments, problems or bugs about the program to the following email addresses. Improvements to the program are currently in progress and a new version is expected soon.
04/2016 - New program version 2.0 published, see details below...
- Points mode - calculate BVS and BVEL values at atomic positions as well as Global Instability Index (GII) and total structure energy
- Split +/- field mode - calculates separate attractive and repulsive fields
- Updated constants from Stefan Adams for BVEL method. This may have an effect on BVEL calculations containing elements O, Li and B and several other anions
- Updated BVS constants from iucr website http://www.iucr.org/resources/data/datasets/bond-valence-parameters
- Removal of +100 value to all VESTA *.grd output
- Overhaul of many subroutines
- B-value mixing currently not implemented
