How to plot the coordination number distribution

Hi OVITO Team,

I am new to OVITO, and I am doing some abinitio molecular dynamics with GeSe. I am interested in the distribution of the coordination number.

Please how to proceed?

Thank you in advance


Hi Linda,

You could start with adding a Coordination Analysis Modifier to your pipeline. You will see a new property "Coordination" appear in the Particle Properties List in the Data Inspector. This tells you the number of neighbors of each atom found in the specified cutoff.

Next, add a Histogram Modifier to the pipeline with settings Operate on -> Particles and Property -> Coordination.

Does that work for you?
