Bond dissociation curves of small clusters of NaH as calculated by DFT and ReaxFF. The energies were computed with reference to the equilibrium bond length’s energy. In the case of DFT, the equilibrium energy of the singlet state was used as a reference.
Binding energies of dissociated on high symmetry sites on Na (100) surface.
Equations of state for two phases(NaCl-type and CsCl-type) of NaH as computed from DFT and ReaxFF.
(a) Equations of state (compression and expansion) for three crystal structures (Al5, bcc, and fcc) of Na phases as computed by DFT and ReaxFF. (b) Equation of state of the bcc phase including volume expansions to the dissociation limit. In both cases, the energies are calculated with respect to the equilibrium energy of the bcc phase.
