We present a real-space code for density functional calculations that has been newly developed in Osaka and Jülich. Exploiting that most operations needed for electronic structure calculation are intrinsically local, the tasks on a real-space grid can be very efficiently parallelized by a domain decomposition scheme. In combination with iterative solvers, this enfavours the performance and scaling behaviour for large system sizes on massively parallel maschines. So far our calculations have been based on the pseudopotential approach. Recently, the norm-conserving pseudopotentials have been replaced by the projector augmented wave (PAW) method proposed by Blöchl. In order to save computational costs and to increase the accuracy, the double grid technique is implemented to enable reasonably coarse grids.
The grid-based method is unrestricted with respect to boundary conditions, i.e. any combination of periodic and isolated boundary conditions can be selected which is well suited for calculating single molecules, wire structures and surface (film) setups without the usage of a super cell. We present the equilibrium structure of therephtalic acid adsorbed to a Cu(111) surface.
