Dear All


I am a beginner of RMCProfile (Ver 6.7.6) user.

Is it possible to swap the tetrahedral ions by keeping the tetrahedral


Now I am performing RMC simulation on the samples including tetrahedral ions
(such as NH4+ and BH4-.).

The sample is the ionic crystal where the tetrahedral ions randomly
substitute the spherical cation/anion sites.

To represent the random distribution of the constituent ions, the swap
between spherical and tetrahedral ions is required.

During the swapping, the tetrahedral unit should be kept.


Please tell me the method for swapping ions including polyhedral ions.


Best regards
