pymatgen.transformations.advanced_transformations module¶

class
ChargeBalanceTransformation
(charge_balance_sp)[source]¶ Bases:
pymatgen.transformations.transformation_abc.AbstractTransformation
This is a transformation that disorders a structure to make it charge balanced, given an oxidation statedecorated structure.
 Parameters
charge_balance_sp – specie to add or remove. Currently only removal is supported

apply_transformation
(structure)[source]¶ Applies the transformation to a structure. Depending on whether a transformation is onetomany, there may be an option to return a ranked list of structures.
 Parameters
structure – input structure
return_ranked_list – Boolean stating whether or not multiple structures are returned. If return_ranked_list is a number, that number of structures is returned.
 Returns
depending on returned_ranked list, either a transformed structure or a list of dictionaries, where each dictionary is of the form {‘structure’ = …. , ‘other_arguments’} the key ‘transformation’ is reserved for the transformation that was actually applied to the structure. This transformation is parsed by the alchemy classes for generating a more specific transformation history. Any other information will be stored in the transformation_parameters dictionary in the transmuted structure class.

inverse
¶ Returns the inverse transformation if available. Otherwise, should return None.

is_one_to_many
¶ Determines if a Transformation is a onetomany transformation. If a Transformation is a onetomany transformation, the apply_transformation method should have a keyword arg “return_ranked_list” which allows for the transformed structures to be returned as a ranked list.

class
DisorderOrderedTransformation
(max_sites_to_merge=2)[source]¶ Bases:
pymatgen.transformations.transformation_abc.AbstractTransformation
Not to be confused with OrderDisorderedTransformation, this transformation attempts to obtain a disordered structure from an input ordered structure. This may or may not be physically plausible, further inspection of the returned structures is advised. The main purpose for this transformation is for structure matching to crystal prototypes for structures that have been derived from a parent prototype structure by substitutions or alloying additions.
 Parameters
max_sites_to_merge – only merge this number of sites together

apply_transformation
(structure, return_ranked_list=False)[source]¶  Parameters
structure – ordered structure
return_ranked_list – as in other pymatgen Transformations
Returns: transformed disordered structure(s)

inverse
¶ Returns the inverse transformation if available. Otherwise, should return None.

is_one_to_many
¶ Determines if a Transformation is a onetomany transformation. If a Transformation is a onetomany transformation, the apply_transformation method should have a keyword arg “return_ranked_list” which allows for the transformed structures to be returned as a ranked list.

class
DopingTransformation
(dopant, ionic_radius_tol=inf, min_length=10, alio_tol=0, codopant=False, max_structures_per_enum=100, allowed_doping_species=None, **kwargs)[source]¶ Bases:
pymatgen.transformations.transformation_abc.AbstractTransformation
A transformation that performs doping of a structure.
 Parameters
dopant (Specielike) – E.g., Al3+. Must have oxidation state.
ionic_radius_tol (float) – E.g., Fractional allowable ionic radii mismatch for dopant to fit into a site. Default of inf means that any dopant with the right oxidation state is allowed.
min_Length (float) – Min. lattice parameter between periodic images of dopant. Defaults to 10A for now.
alio_tol (int) – If this is not 0, attempt will be made to dope sites with oxidation_states + alio_tol of the dopant. E.g., 1 means that the ions like Ca2+ and Ti4+ are considered as potential doping sites for Al3+.
codopant (bool) – If True, doping will be carried out with a codopant to maintain charge neutrality. Otherwise, vacancies will be used.
max_structures_per_enum (float) – Maximum number of structures to return per enumeration. Note that there can be more than one candidate doping site, and each site enumeration will return at max max_structures_per_enum structures. Defaults to 100.
allowed_doping_species (list) – Species that are allowed to be doping sites. This is an inclusionary list. If specified, any sites which are not
**kwargs – Same keyword args as
EnumerateStructureTransformation
, i.e., min_cell_size, etc.

apply_transformation
(structure, return_ranked_list=False)[source]¶  Parameters
structure (Structure) – Input structure to dope
 Returns
Structure, “energy”: float}]
 Return type
[{“structure”

inverse
¶ Returns the inverse transformation if available. Otherwise, should return None.

is_one_to_many

class
EnumerateStructureTransformation
(min_cell_size=1, max_cell_size=1, symm_prec=0.1, refine_structure=False, enum_precision_parameter=0.001, check_ordered_symmetry=True, max_disordered_sites=None, sort_criteria='ewald', timeout=None)[source]¶ Bases:
pymatgen.transformations.transformation_abc.AbstractTransformation
Order a disordered structure using enumlib. For complete orderings, this generally produces fewer structures that the OrderDisorderedStructure transformation, and at a much faster speed.
 Parameters
min_cell_size – The minimum cell size wanted. Must be an int. Defaults to 1.
max_cell_size – The maximum cell size wanted. Must be an int. Defaults to 1.
symm_prec – Tolerance to use for symmetry.
refine_structure – This parameter has the same meaning as in enumlib_caller. If you are starting from a structure that has been relaxed via some electronic structure code, it is usually much better to start with symmetry determination and then obtain a refined structure. The refined structure have cell parameters and atomic positions shifted to the expected symmetry positions, which makes it much less sensitive precision issues in enumlib. If you are already starting from an experimental cif, refinment should have already been done and it is not necessary. Defaults to False.
enum_precision_parameter (float) – Finite precision parameter for enumlib. Default of 0.001 is usually ok, but you might need to tweak it for certain cells.
check_ordered_symmetry (bool) – Whether to check the symmetry of the ordered sites. If the symmetry of the ordered sites is lower, the lowest symmetry ordered sites is included in the enumeration. This is important if the ordered sites break symmetry in a way that is important getting possible structures. But sometimes including ordered sites slows down enumeration to the point that it cannot be completed. Switch to False in those cases. Defaults to True.
max_disordered_sites (int) – An alternate parameter to max_cell size. Will sequentially try larger and larger cell sizes until (i) getting a result or (ii) the number of disordered sites in the cell exceeds max_disordered_sites. Must set max_cell_size to None when using this parameter.
sort_criteria (str) – Sort by Ewald energy (“ewald”, must have oxidation states and slow) or by number of sites (“nsites”, much faster).
timeout (float) – timeout in minutes to pass to EnumlibAdaptor

apply_transformation
(structure, return_ranked_list=False)[source]¶ Return either a single ordered structure or a sequence of all ordered structures.
 Parameters
structure – Structure to order.
return_ranked_list (bool) – Whether or not multiple structures are returned. If return_ranked_list is a number, that number of structures is returned.
 Returns
Depending on returned_ranked list, either a transformed structure or a list of dictionaries, where each dictionary is of the form {“structure” = …. , “other_arguments”}
The list of ordered structures is ranked by ewald energy / atom, if the input structure is an oxidation state decorated structure. Otherwise, it is ranked by number of sites, with smallest number of sites first.

inverse
¶ Returns the inverse transformation if available. Otherwise, should return None.

is_one_to_many
¶ Determines if a Transformation is a onetomany transformation. If a Transformation is a onetomany transformation, the apply_transformation method should have a keyword arg “return_ranked_list” which allows for the transformed structures to be returned as a ranked list.

class
GrainBoundaryTransformation
(rotation_axis, rotation_angle, expand_times=4, vacuum_thickness=0.0, ab_shift=[0, 0], normal=False, ratio=None, plane=None, max_search=50, tol_coi=0.001)[source]¶ Bases:
pymatgen.transformations.transformation_abc.AbstractTransformation
A transformation that creates a gb from a bulk structure.
 Parameters
rotation_axis (list) – Rotation axis of GB in the form of a list of integer e.g.: [1, 1, 0]
rotation_angle (float, in unit of degree) – rotation angle used to generate GB. Make sure the angle is accurate enough. You can use the enum* functions in this class to extract the accurate angle. e.g.: The rotation angle of sigma 3 twist GB with the rotation axis [1, 1, 1] and GB plane (1, 1, 1) can be 60.000000000 degree. If you do not know the rotation angle, but know the sigma value, we have provide the function get_rotation_angle_from_sigma which is able to return all the rotation angles of sigma value you provided.
expand_times (int) – The multiple times used to expand one unit grain to larger grain. This is used to tune the grain length of GB to warrant that the two GBs in one cell do not interact with each other. Default set to 4.
vacuum_thickness (float) – The thickness of vacuum that you want to insert between two grains of the GB. Default to 0.
ab_shift (list of float, in unit of a, b vectors of Gb) – in plane shift of two grains
normal (logic) – determine if need to require the c axis of top grain (first transformation matrix) perperdicular to the surface or not. default to false.
ratio (list of integers) – lattice axial ratio. For cubic system, ratio is not needed. For tetragonal system, ratio = [mu, mv], list of two integers, that is, mu/mv = c2/a2. If it is irrational, set it to none. For orthorhombic system, ratio = [mu, lam, mv], list of three integers, that is, mu:lam:mv = c2:b2:a2. If irrational for one axis, set it to None. e.g. mu:lam:mv = c2,None,a2, means b2 is irrational. For rhombohedral system, ratio = [mu, mv], list of two integers, that is, mu/mv is the ratio of (1+2*cos(alpha))/cos(alpha). If irrational, set it to None. For hexagonal system, ratio = [mu, mv], list of two integers, that is, mu/mv = c2/a2. If it is irrational, set it to none.
plane (list) – Grain boundary plane in the form of a list of integers e.g.: [1, 2, 3]. If none, we set it as twist GB. The plane will be perpendicular to the rotation axis.
max_search (int) – max search for the GB lattice vectors that give the smallest GB lattice. If normal is true, also max search the GB c vector that perpendicular to the plane. For complex GB, if you want to speed up, you can reduce this value. But too small of this value may lead to error.
tol_coi (float) – tolerance to find the coincidence sites. When making approximations to the ratio needed to generate the GB, you probably need to increase this tolerance to obtain the correct number of coincidence sites. To check the number of coincidence sites are correct or not, you can compare the generated Gb object’s sigma with enum* sigma values (what user expected by input).
 Returns
Grain boundary structure (Gb (Structure) object).

class
MultipleSubstitutionTransformation
(sp_to_replace, r_fraction, substitution_dict, charge_balance_species=None, order=True)[source]¶ Bases:
object
Performs multiple substitutions on a structure. For example, can do a fractional replacement of Ge in LiGePS with a list of species, creating one structure for each substitution. Ordering is done using a dummy element so only one ordering must be done per substitution oxidation state. Charge balancing of the structure is optionally performed.
Note
There are no checks to make sure that removal fractions are possible and rounding may occur. Currently charge balancing only works for removal of species.
Performs multiple fractional substitutions on a transmuter.
 Parameters
sp_to_replace – species to be replaced
r_fraction – fraction of that specie to replace
substitution_dict – dictionary of the format {2: [“Mg”, “Ti”, “V”, “As”, “Cr”, “Ta”, “N”, “Nb”], 3: [“Ru”, “Fe”, “Co”, “Ce”, “As”, “Cr”, “Ta”, “N”, “Nb”], 4: [“Ru”, “V”, “Cr”, “Ta”, “N”, “Nb”], 5: [“Ru”, “W”, “Mn”] } The number is the charge used for each of the list of elements (an element can be present in multiple lists)
