Making DFT calculations for bulk crystals is fine, but many properties of real materials arise due to impurities and defects. Or are due to layering. How to deal with that? For periodic DFT codes, the answer is: supercells.
Use the tools in or around your favourite DFT code (or read the supercell instructions in part C) to create a cif-file for the following situations (these are the same exercises as listed in the supercell instructions in the “let’s play” module ):
In all cases, describe how you did it and add a picture (screenshot) of the supercell you made. Put everything in one pdf, and upload it. This task is about creating supercells only, no DFT calculation is needed.
