STREL: a versatile computational environment for the study and design of nanostructures
Fabrication techniques have advanced greatly and many nanostructures have been produced, studied and have found technological application. The study of the nanostructures, both experimentally and theoretically is very demanding, as many degrees of freedom are important in determining their properties. In order to meet these complex tasks, we have prepared a computational environment to facilitate the study of the structural, electronic and optical properties of nanostructures. In this environment, it is possible to tailor the properties of specific nanostructures.
