I'd like to use the tight-binding model with a linear combination of atomic orbitals.

It should show the full energy bands, as well as the spatial probability distribution for each eigenfunction of the Hamiltonian. Ideally it would be easy to use with many tunable parameters.

Can anyone recommend a software for this?

  • $\begingroup$ If you have the orbital coefficients, you can generate orbital-like distributions, and cube files from them. Such can be visualized with many free software, eg VESTA $\endgroup$
