how to add new elements? lvyayao90  2019-03-20
 

Hi Skyline team
I tried to add Tb, Tm, and Ho as new elements in the unimod.xlm file in folder Skyline_4_2_0_19009 as following, but Skyline software still pops-up that Tb is not a valid chemical formula.
<umod:elem title="Tb" full_name="Terbium" avge_mass="158.9253" mono_mass="158.925343"/>
<umod:elem title="Tm" full_name="Thulium" avge_mass="168.9342" mono_mass="168.934211"/>
<umod:elem title="Ho" full_name="Holmium" avge_mass="164.9303" mono_mass="164.930319"/>

 <umod:brick title="Tb" full_name="Terbium" mono_mass="158.925343" avge_mass="158.9253">
     <umod:element symbol="Tb" number="1"/>
  </umod:brick>
  <umod:brick title="Tm" full_name="Thulium" mono_mass="168.934211" avge_mass="168.9342">
     <umod:element symbol="Tm" number="1"/>
  </umod:brick>
  <umod:brick title="Ho" full_name="Holmium" mono_mass="164.930319" avge_mass="164.9303">
     <umod:element symbol="Ho" number="1"/>
  </umod:brick>

Is there anything else I could do to get Skyline to recognize the three elements? Thank you!

Yayao

Hello Yayao,

We are currently working on extending Skyline to support the entire periodic table. The changes are in code review now and I am hopeful that this work will appear in the next Skyline-Daily, which should be soon.

Best Regards,
