OOMMF is a project in the Applied and Computational Mathematics Division (ACMD) of ITL/NIST, in close cooperation with µMAG, aimed at developing portable, extensible public domain programs and tools for micromagnetics. The end product will be a fully functional micromagnetic code, with a well documented, flexible programmer's interface to allow developers outside the OOMMF project to swap their own code in and out as desired. The guts of the code are being written in C++ with a Tcl/Tk (and in the future, possibly OpenGL) interface. Target systems include a wide range of Unix platforms and Windows (9x and later). The open source scripting language Tcl/Tk is required to run OOMMF.
The main contributors to OOMMF are Mike Donahue, and Don Porter.
Postdoctoral Positions: National Research Council Postdoctoral Research
