ShengBTE and thirdorder.py were originally developed at CEA Grenoble by
Nebil A. Katcho
The Quantum ESPRESSO backend code for thirdorder.py was mainly developed by
Antti J. Karttunen
who also contributed the ESPRESSO test data for ShengBTE and helped enhance the support for second-order force constants generated with ESPRESSO.
Mr. Guangzhao Qin contributed a patch to provide more detailed output from ShengBTE and estimate the effect of boundary scattering.
Dr. Youdi Kuang implemented time reversal symmetry.
The following people are also acknowledged for their contributions in the form of insightful comments, beta testing and computing time:
Prof. David Broido
Prof. Stefano Curtarolo
Prof. Philippe Jund
