What other kMC codes are there?

Kinetic Monte Carlo codes that I am currently aware of, that are in some form released on the intertubes are with no claim of completeness :

Though The Google might find you some more. Please drop me a line if you find any information inaccurate.

What does kmos stand for anyways?

Good question, initially kmos was supposed to stand for kinetic modeling on steroids because it feels really fast to model with kmos. But that confused people too much since we are not modelling reactions on steroids but on surfaces :-). Some other popular variants are

  • kMC Modeling Of Surfaces
  • kMC modeling offering source
  • kMC models on screen

I am open for suggestions.
