CrystalGrower: Graphical User Interface

Published: 28 February 2023| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/gvrxycc28v.1


This distribution contains a Tkinter based graphical user interface for CrystalGrower Monte Carlo crystal-growth software. Described in: M.W. Anderson et al., Nature, 544, 2017, 456-459 and A. R. Hill et al., Chemical Science, 12, 2021, 1126-1146. The code presented here accompanies work outlined in the thesis chapter “Development of a Graphical User Interface for CrystalGrower”. Whilst the GUI is open source, the main CrystalGrower program is not and is therefore not included as part of this distribution. The GUI will not be fully functional until an executable for this software is added to the package. For further information on use of CrystalGrower, visit
