A new computational tool for carrying out spin wave calculations is available for download. While developing spin wave models to characterize magnetic interactions in materials, we have looked for opportunities to abstract and automate large portions of this analysis and modeling process. By collecting and connecting these generic pieces in a software library, we have substantially reduced the time to complete one of these calculations. We believe SpinWaveGenie contains several features that help it stand out among competing solutions:
Over the past few months we have been working to make SpinWaveGenie available to the wider community. We have moved to a public GitHub repository and tagged release v0.1.1.
Installation instructions are on the repository’s wiki. The SpinWaveGenie wiki also contains many examples to help new users get started and continues to grow as we use SpinWaveGenie to model new materials. To facilitate communication amongst users and developers, we have created a public Gitter chatroom. We hope you will try SpinWaveGenie, send us feedback and consider making contributions to this open source project.
