Description

CIF2Cell is a tool to generate the geometrical setup for various electronic structure codes from a CIF (Crystallographic Information Framework) file. The program currently supports output for a number of popular electronic structure programs, including ABINIT, ASE, CASTEP, CP2K, CPMD, CRYSTAL09, Elk, EMTO, Exciting, Fleur, FHI-aims, Hutsepot, MOPAC, Quantum Espresso, RSPt, Siesta, SPR-KKR, VASP. Also exports some related formats like .coo, .cfg and .xyz-files. The program has been published in Computer Physics Communications 182 (2011) 1183–1186. Please cite generously.

    This is a very useful tool. A must have in Condensate Matter research.

    Fantastic tool, and thank you! Saved me a lot of time, as I didn't have to modify my own codes (e.g., writing the symmetry operations) for generating structures (vasp, xyz etc) for every new material I studied.

    Excellent! I would like if there will be pwscf outcome option for Quantum Esspresso...but I use the outcome of ELK at the moment...but, if that option is available, it will be great!
