Parameters: 


Bases: object
An embedded entry that specifies the thermodynamic state of a phase or interface.
Parameters: 


Bases: object
Base class for phases of matter.
Parameters: 


Bases: ctml_writer.phase
An ideal gas mixture.
The parameters correspond to those of phase, with the following modifications:
Parameters: 


Bases: ctml_writer.phase
A solid compound or pure element. Stoichiometric solid phases contain exactly one species, which always has unit activity. The solid is assumed to have constant density. Therefore the rates of reactions involving these phases do not contain any concentration terms for the (one) species in the phase, since the concentration is always the same.
See phase for descriptions of the parameters.
Bases: ctml_writer.stoichiometric_solid
An incompressible stoichiometric liquid. Currently, there is no distinction between stoichiometric liquids and solids.
See phase for descriptions of the parameters.
Bases: ctml_writer.phase
A metal.
Bases: ctml_writer.phase
A semiconductor.
Bases: ctml_writer.phase
An incompressible solid.
Bases: ctml_writer.phase
Bases: ctml_writer.phase
A solid crystal consisting of one or more sublattices.
Bases: ctml_writer.phase
A fluid with a complete liquid/vapor equation of state. This entry type selects one of a set of predefined fluids with builtin liquid/vapor equations of state. The substance_flag parameter selects the fluid. See purefluids.py for the usage of this entry type.
