Calculation and Parser classes


Plugin for Wannier90, a code for computing maximally-localized Wannier functions. See for more details.


  • code, Code, required – The Code to use for this job.
  • kpoint_path, Dict, optional – Description of the k-points path to be used for bands interpolation; it should contain two properties: a list path of length-2 tuples with the labels of the endpoints of the path; and a dictionary point_coords giving the scaled coordinates for each high-symmetry endpoint.
  • kpoints, KpointsData, required – k-point mesh used in the NSCF calculation.

    Namespace Ports
    • call_link_label, str, optional, non_db – The label to use for the CALL link if the process is called by another process.
    • computer, Computer, optional, non_db – When using a “local” code, set the computer on which the calculation should be run.
    • description, str, optional, non_db – Description to set on the process node.
    • dry_run, bool, optional, non_db – When set to True will prepare the calculation job for submission but not actually launch it.

      • scheduler_stderr, str, optional, non_db – Filename to which the content of stderr of the scheduler is written.
      • scheduler_stdout, str, optional, non_db – Filename to which the content of stdout of the scheduler is written.

        Namespace Ports

      • submit_script_filename, str, optional, non_db – Filename to which the job submission script is written.
      • withmpi, bool, optional, non_db
    • store_provenance, bool, optional, non_db – If set to False provenance will not be stored in the database.
  • parameters, Dict, required – Input parameters for the Wannier90 code
  • projections, (OrbitalData, Dict, List), optional – Starting projections for the Wannierisation procedure.
  • remote_input_folder, RemoteData, optional – Get input files (.amn, .mmn, …) from a class RemoteData possibly stored in a remote computer.
  • settings, Dict, optional – Additional settings to manage the Wannier90 calculation.
  • structure, StructureData, required – input crystal structure


  • interpolated_bands, BandsData, optional – The interpolated band structure by Wannier90 (if any).
  • nnkp_file, SinglefileData, optional – The .nnkp file, produced only in -pp (postproc) mode.

class aiida_wannier90.parsers.Wannier90Parser(node)[source]

Wannier90 output parser. Will parse the centres, spreads and, if available, the Imaginary/Real ratio of the Wannier functions. Will also check if the output converged.

Helper modules

Writing input files

This submodule contains helper functions to create input files., parameters, kpoints=None, structure=None, kpoint_path=None, projections=None, random_projections=False)[source]

Write input to a .win file.


Creating OrbitalData instances

aiida_wannier90.orbitals.generate_projections(list_of_projection_dicts, structure)[source]

Use this method to emulate the input style of Wannier90, when setting the orbitals (see chapter 3 in the Wannier90 user guide). Position can be provided either in Cartesian coordinates using position_cart or can be assigned based on an input structure and kind_name. Pass a list of dictionaries, in which the keys of each dictionary correspond to those below. Also note that radial and ang_mtm_mr_list both use 0-based indexing as opposed to 1-based indexing, effectively meaning that both should be offset by 1. E.g., an orbital with two radial nodes would use radial=2 (Wannier90 syntax), and then be converted to radial_nodes=1 (AiiDA plugin syntax) inside the stored orbital.


The key entries used here do not correspond to the keys used internally by the orbital objects. For example, ang_mtm_mr_list will be converted to magnetic_number in the OrbitalData node (the internal key is mentioned in brackets).

  • position_cart – position in Cartesian coordinates or list of positions in Cartesian coordinates (position)

  • kind_name – kind name in the input StructureData node (kind_name)

  • radial – number of radial nodes (radial_nodes + 1)

  • ang_mtm_name – orbital name or list of orbital names, cannot be used in conjunction with ang_mtm_l_list or ang_mtm_mr_list (see ang_mtm_l_list and ang_mtm_mr_list).

  • ang_mtm_l_list – angular momentum (either an integer or a list), if ang_mtm_mr_list is not specified will return all orbitals associated with it (angular_momentum).

  • ang_mtm_mr_list – magnetic angular momentum number must be specified along with ang_mtm_l_list (magnetic_number + 1). Note that if this is specified, ang_mtm_l_list must be an integer and not a list.

  • spin – the spin, spin up can be specified with 1, 'u' or 'U' and spin down can be specified using -1, 'd' or 'D' (spin)

  • zona – as specified in user guide, applied to all orbitals (diffusivity)

  • zaxis – the z-axis of the orbital, a list of three floats as described in wannier user guide (z_orientation)

  • xaxis – the x-axis of the orbital, a list of three floats as described in the Wannier user guide (x_orientation)

  • spin_axis – the spin alignment axis, as described in the user guide (spin_orientation)
