The AFLOW database and software leverages ab initio calculations for autonomous materials design . The predictive power critically relies on accurate formation enthalpies – quantifying the thermodynamic stability of a compound. For polar materials such as chalcogenides (e.g. oxides), pnictides (e.g. nitrides), and halides, standard semi-local DFT leads to errors of several hundred meV/atom [2,3].
We have recently developed the "coordination corrected enthalpies" (CCE) method yielding highly accurate room temperature formation enthalpies with mean absolute errors down to 27 meV/atom . The approach is also capable of correcting the relative stability of polymorphs – an advantage versus earlier schemes. Here, we introduce a tool where users can input a structure file of their system and receive the CCE corrections, or even the CCE formation enthalpies if pre-calculated LDA, PBE or SCAN formation energies are provided. The results can be used for the computational design of polar compounds such as battery materials, defect systems, and high-entropy phases.
