Ionic Kinetic Energy Tag

Post by tbbishop » Thu May 17, 2018 9:06 pm

Hi Francois,

I was wondering if there is a tag in the output file that specifies the ionic kinetic energy? I thought maybe it is ekin, but is it the ionic kinetic energy or electronic?

Hi Tyler,
The <ekin> element is the kinetic energy of the electrons.
When running MD simulations, the <ekin_ion> element gives the kinetic energy of the ions (in atomic units, Hartree). For convenience, the same quantity is also given by the element <temp_ion> in Kelvin.
