Computer Simulations of Cluster-Solid Interactions: Energetic Clusters and Soft Landings

  • Mai Ghaly (a1) and R. S. Averback (a2)

The interaction of small energetic clusters of Cu atoms with Cu surfaces has been investigated by molecular dynamics computer simulations. The simulations are fully dynamical and three dimensional; they employ embedded atom method potentials. The simulations described here are an extension of our past work on cluster solid interactions [1]. In this work, the effects of the angle of incidence, energy, size and temperature of the cluster are examined. In addition, soft landings of Cu clusters on Cu are simulated.
