A code for highly efficient Wannier interpolation.

Evaluation of k-space integrals of Berry curvature, orbital moment and derived quantities by means of MLWFs or tight-binding models. Compared to postw90.x part of Wannier90 code, it has extended functional and improved performance

This code is intended for highly-efficient wannier interpolation. Being initially an analog of postw90.x part of Wannier90 code, it has extended functional and improved performance.

Improved performance and accuracy:

Wannier-Berri calculates Brillouin zone integrals very fast with high precision over an ultradense k-grid. This is achieved due to :

  • Using Fast Fourier Transform
  • account of symmetries, to reduce integration to irreducible part of the Brillouin zone
  • recursive adaptive refinement algorithm
  • optimized Fermi level scan
  • optimized minimal distanse replica method (use_ws_distance)

Implemented functionality:

  • Anomalous Hall conductivity
  • Orbital magnetization (modern theory)
  • Ohmic conductivity
  • Berry curvature dipole
  • gyrotropic magnetoelectric effect
  • Hall effect
  • Low-Field Hall effect

Other features:

  • Object oriented structure also makes it potentially easier to implement further features.
  • Calculations may also be performed for any tight-binding model, for which a "_tb.dat" file was generated in watever way.
  • WannierBerri can run in parallel by means of multiprocessing module

The code was inspired by the Wannier90 Fortran code: , . Some parts of the code are an adapted translation of postw90 code.
