eOn units

Post by sebastianecheverrir »

Dear Forum,

In the output file dynamics.txt we get the output of some simulation related quantities. For a system containing a perfect BCC Fe crystal and a single interstitial C atom, I get the following results (I am using a potential from lammps for the interactions)

Code: Select all

step-number   reactant-id    process-id    product-id     step-time    total-time       barrier          rate        energy
           0             0             0           643  8.381686e-06  8.381686e-06      0.816150  5.332670e+03  -1013.301323
           1           643             0           613  9.490784e-05  1.032895e-04      0.816150  5.334370e+03  -1013.301320
The energy/barrier units seem to be eV. What are the units of time and rate? Is this in the documentation (I was not able to find it)?

Hi Sebastián,
The units of time are seconds and the rates are in 1/s.
