Molecular visualization of Fullerenes over three different metal plates: Gold, Aluminum, and Beryllium. It illustrates the result of a molecular dynamics simulation. The volume rendering in bluish and greenish colors shows negative and positive charge accumulation.
Atoms are rendered as OpenGL points, textured with color and font, and ray-traced to a sphere in the fragment shader stage. The bonds are generated via a geometry shader. The volume rendering uses a texture based approach in non-orthogonal coordinates. The visualization was implemented in vish
