TCOD_METHOD

_tcod_structure_type

This data item specifies what kind of computationally optimised structure does the file record. Structures that record stable crystal polymorphs with long time-lifes (i.e. time lifes much longer than duration of a typical diffraction experiment) are 'ground-state'; however, short-lived structures that can be refined with the help of DFT or other methods can be included into TCOD, but must be tagged accordingly.

Possibly, we can classify structures by their half-lifes at certain temperatures.

Values:

ValueDescription
crystal-ground-staterefined crystal structure at ground state
crystal-excited-staterefined crystal structure at some excited state, e.g. LUMO
crystal-metastablemetastable structure that is short lived
crystal-soft-phonondynamically disorderd, unstable structures
crystal-transition-statemolecular structure in a sort-lived reaction transition-state
vacuum-ground-staterefined crystal structure at ground state
vacuum-excited-staterefined crystal structure at some excited state, e.g. LUMO
vacuum-metastablemetastable structure that is short lived
vacuum-transition-statemolecular structure in a sort-lived reaction transition-state

_tcod_model

S.G. 2016-10-28: FIXME:

‒ merge with the NOMAD 'Electronic structure method';

‒ add indication that this data item is related to the NOMAD 'Electronic structure method';

‒ see also: NOMAD 'calcuation_method'

This should define the theoretical model used to calculate the structure.

L.V. The list is by no means exhaustive and should be constantly updated.

Main classes of models: DFT, ab initio (post-Hartree-Fock: Moeller-Plesset (MPx), Configuration Interaction (CI), coupled cluster (CC), Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC), Symmetry-adapted perturbation theory (SAPT), semi-empirical (OF-DFT, DFTB, NDDO, MINDO etc.), force field (empirical), coarse-grained (non-atomistic).

Keywords: DFT (Density model theory), HF (Hartree-Fock), MPn (Moller-Plesset) perturbation theory, e.g. local MP2 by Kresse, Schutz, Scuseria etc.), MI (Method of increments by H. Stoll et al.), CC (Periodic coupled cluster e.g. by Grüneis et al.), QMC (Quantum Monte Carlo by Ceperley, Mitas, Recently FCI-QMC by Alavi et al.), Orbital-free DFT (E. Carter et al.), DFTB (Density model tight binding by Seifert, Frauenheim etc.), Semi-empirical methods, Force field models (fixed charged, polarizable, distributed multipoles etc.), Coarse-grained models (e.g. Martini)

L.V. Tried to compile a short list of methods used for periodic calculations

L.V. in principal one should also define a class for hybrid models (QM/MM)

One can add a human-readable description of the mehtod here as well as the reference.

L.V. Is it possible to add full cif syntax to define the reference? S.G. Yes, done in the ..._citation_id and _tcod_citation_linkage data items.

TCOD_DATABASE

Data items from this category are used for TCOD bookkeeping records, such as assigned TCOD number (aka TCOD database code).

_tcod_database_code

Specifies TCOD number assigned upon deposition into TCOD to the crystal structure described in the CIF.

TCOD_DATA_SOURCE

Data items from this category are used to record and trace sources of information deposited into TCOD.

_tcod_data_source_file

Specifies file name of the file that served as a source of data in this TCOD entry. The file should be recoded without the path or other URL components, since these components usually have no sense on the recipient's system. In Unix parlance, the value recorded should be the basename of the original file. For many data sources, however, the basename contains enough information to locate the original source. For instance, CIFs published in IUCr journals have Coeditor Code as a CIF file name, permitting to identify the original paper where the structure is discussed. Other journals may used original article's DOI as a part of the filename for the supplementary CIF file, which also permits one to trace back the original paper.

_tcod_data_source_block

Specifies the name of the data block within the file specified in the _tcod_data_source_file tag that served as a source of data in this TCOD entry. Only the data block name following the 'data_' header keyword should be recorded, not the whole data block header; i.e. the value specified here should be 'I', *not* 'data_I', for a data block with the header 'data_I'.

TCOD_SOURCE_STRUCTURE_DATABASE
