Quantum Monte Carlo is applied to phosphors for the first time.
A citation paper describing the current structure, capabilities and some future plans for the code has been published. J. Kim et al J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 30 195901 (2018), https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-648X/aab9c3. The paper is open access for the first year. The preprint is available at https://arxiv.org/abs/1802.06922.
This release includes new methods, converter updates, and many optimizations, feature improvements, and bug fixes. It is a recommended update for all users.
This release provides a significant speed increase for many calculations. A C++11 compiler is now required. It is a recommended update.
Phosphorene is a two dimensional material whose direct semiconducting band-gap, high carrier mobility and sensitivity to strain make it promising for applications.
