How to visualize magnetic configuration of atoms from an initial or a computed structure(Mag-View)¶
CINEMAS can visualize the magnetic configuration directly from the input and out files.
From a workflow containing valid files for a magnetic calculation, if a structure is visualized in CINEMAS-view.
One can go to Mag-view tab in Style option on the right side of the CINEMAS-view window.
For VASP code, CINEMAS can directly read magnetic-configuration from INCAR or OUTCAR file.
Mag-view can be toggled between ‘from input’ or ‘from output’.
If CINEMAS finds ‘LNONCOLLINEAR = .TRUE.’, it will automatically read magnetic configuration from ‘MAGMOM’ tag in vector format.
Depending upon the toggle switch, CINEMAS will show magnetic configuration either from INCAR or OUTCAR file.
If workflow contains a calculation with only ISPIN = 2 but does not have a corresponding MAGMOM tag, CINEMAS will prompt it with a an exclamation sign in red color, as shown in the figure below.
Similarly, if the OUTCAR file has any discrepancy, a red exclamation sign will be prompted by CINEMAS.
- Appearance of arrows can be customized collectively, for individual species, or for individual spin.
Arrow/tip length/radius can be scaled.
Arrow/tip color can be changed.
Depending upon from input or from output by double-clicking on an arrow, it display the value of magnetic moment for a particular species.
