Gecko Hamaker


The Gecko Hamaker open-source software project is a full implementation of the fully retarded Lifshitz formulations for isotropic and anisotropic plane-plane and cylinder-cylinder interactions with intervening interlayer materials, planar systems of up to 99 layers, and graded interfaces for the modeling of grain boundaries or other continuously changing systems, accompanied by a database of material optical properties spectra.
The machine-readable optical property database is available for download and as a web service and makes available the full spectral optical properties of over 150 materials from both ab initio calculations and experimental measurements.


  • Designed for various interaction morphologies : optically anisotropic cylinders, optically isotropic and anisotropic half-spaces, multi-layered half-spaces (up to 99 layers), and graded-interface half spaces.
  • Incorporating full spectral properties of over 150 materials including inorganic as well as organic materials such as SWCNTs, Type I collagen and (GC)10 duplex DNA spectra.
