Experimental and calculated INS spectra of NaHF_{2}.

CASTEP can compute vibrational (phonon) modes for metals and insulators using either density functional perturbation theory or supercells and finite displacements. Full use is made of space group symmetry. IR and Raman intensities can also be simulated.

For more information on vibrational properties in CASTEP see the following talks from the 2009 Castep workshop:

- Vibrational spectroscopy methods Dr Keith Refson (STFC / RAL)
- Advanced Vibrational spectroscopy methods Dr Keith Refson (STFC / RAL)

The a-CLIMAX package by A J Ramirez-Cuesta (ISIS) for simulating INS spectra from CASTEP calculations.
