Ninithi is a free, open-source modelling software developed to visualize and analyze the carbon allotropes used in nanotechnology. Nanotechnology deals with objects which are at nanometer scale and not visible even to powerful optical microscopes. An infinite number of geometries exist and it is not feasible to prepare samples of all of them in the real world. Having a three dimensional visualization of atomic structures in a virtual environment and the capability to plot graphs illustrating their band structure greatly enhances the ability to understand the correlation between material properties and the geometry. Ninithi provides this functionality with attractive 3D images and 2D/3D graph plots features to users. Target group of users are the lecturers, students and scientists who are involved in nanotechnology related work.
