Atomic Simulation Environment

Level of support

Tier 2 NSC has only limited experience with this software, but we will try to help as much as possible. We have ran some tests, for example, if the program comes with a test suite, but they may be far from exhaustive. We will try to install and test new versions, as soon as we can.

Please see the page describing our software support categories for more information.
You can also contact for further information.

The source code for this version of ASE was downloaded from the ASE home page on 2012–10–17.

New features in this version:

  • Improved subroutines for making surfaces with arbitrary Miller indices
  • Updated covalent/vdW atomic radii
  • New command line tool for making quick calculations.

How to use

The module for ASE 3.6.0 is called “ase/3.6.0”. Load it together with an NSC Python module.

module load python/2.7.4-snic-1 ase/3.6.0

This will set up ASE to work within Python.
