A Python Simulation Toolkit for 1D Ultrafast Dynamics in Condensed Matter
The udkm1Dsim toolbox is a collection of Python classes and routines to simulate the structural dynamics and the according X-ray diffraction response in one-dimensional sample structures after ultrafast excitation. The toolbox provides the capabilities to define arbitrary layered structures on the atomic level including a rich database of element-specific physical properties. The excitation of ultrafast dynamics is represented by an N-temperature-model which is commonly applied for ultrafast optical excitations. Structural dynamics due to thermal stresses are calculated by a linear-chain model of masses and springs. The resulting X-ray diffraction response is computed by dynamical X-ray theory. The udkm1Dsim toolbox is highly modular and allows to introduce user-defined results at any step in the simulation procedure.
The udkm1Dsim toolbox was developed in the Ultrafast Dynamics in Condensed Matter group of Prof. Matias Bargheer at the University of Potsdam, Germany. The toolbox is currently maintained by Daniel Schick.
