VASPLAB

MATLAB functions for processing data from the Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package (VASP) and performing other common tasks related to the atomistic modeling of solid-state systems.

Installation

To install VASPLAB, place the VASPLAB folder somewhere on your hard drive (such as in your MATLAB folder). Then, from MATLAB, open File->Set Path, and add the VASPLAB folder to your path.
