Dacapo is a total energy program based on density functional theory. It uses a plane wave basis for the valence electronic states and describes the core-electron interactions with Vanderbilt ultrasoft pseudo-potentials. For an overview see the Pseudopotential Library page.
Calculations using dacapo are done using the Atomic Simulation Environment (ASE).
