The interatomic potentials in MD are usually obtained by fitting to the physical and chemical properties from limited experimental or theoretical data. Consequently, the accuracy of interatomic potential in predicting energy and force is rather limited. An accurate interatomic potential thus can greatly improve the efficiency of large-scale simulations, guiding for searching new materials and designing new functionalities of current materials.
