COMPUTER SIMULATIONS OF ATOMS INTERACTING WITH A SOLID SURFACE. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • In order to obtain a qualitative understanding of the fundamental physical processes that occur when atoms interact with solid surfaces, we have performed computer simulations for the (111) surface of a face-centered cubic material. In these simulations, atoms are incident on the solid surface with different initial velocities and positions. The interaction of incident atom with substrate atoms, and the interactions of the substrate atoms among themselves, are modeled with Lennard-Jones potentials.
