Referencing And Logo


The CASTEP logo should be used on slides and posters presenting calculations performed with CASTEP. The white on blue logo should be used where possible. Blue on white and black and white versions are also available. Images can be downloaded below in high-resolution png and vector pdf formats. CASTEP blue is R0 G66 B118, C100% M67% Y15% K 27%, #004276

The CASTEP developers Group are grateful to Miri Zilka for the design of the CASTEP logo.


Note that CASTEP will write a *.bib file containing suitable references in a bibtex format at the end of run.
