Structural properties of silicene nanoribbons (SiNRs) of varying width have been investigated under 5% and 10% uniaxial strain via classical Molecular-Dynamics simulations at 1 and 300?K temperatures by the aid of atomistic many-body potential energy functions (PEFs). It has been found that under strain, SiNRs show such material properties: they are very ductile, with considerable toughness and a very long plastic range before fragmentation.

Molecular-dynamics simulations of nickel clusters
Erkoç, Şakir; Gunes, B; Gunes, P (2000-07-01)
Structural stability and energetics of nickel clusters, Nih (N = 3 - 459), have been inves tigated by molecular-dynamics simulations, A size-dependent empirical model potential energy function has been used in the simulations. Stable structures of the microclusters with sizes N = 3 - 55 and clusters generated from fee crystal structure with sizes N = 79 - 459 have been determined by molecular-dynamics simulations. It has been found that the fivefold symmetry appears on the surface of the spherical clusters....
Mechanical properties of CdZnTe nanowires under uniaxial stretching and compression: A molecular dynamics simulation study
Kurban, Mustafa; Erkoç, Şakir (2016-09-01)
Structural and mechanical properties of ternary CdZnTe nanowires have been investigated by performing molecular dynamics simulations using an atomistic potential. The simulation procedures are carried out as uniaxial stretching and compression at 1 K and 300 K. The results demonstrate that the mechanical properties of CdZnTe ternary nanowires show significantly a dependence on size and temperature under uniaxial stretching and compression.
Molecular-dynamics simulation of radiation damage on copper clusters
Erkoç, Şakir (2000-07-01)
The effect of radiation damage on copper clusters has been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics simulation using empirical potential energy function for interaction between copper atoms. The external radiation is modeled by giving extra kinetic energy in the range of 5- 50 eV to initially chosen atom in the cluster. It has been found that the atom having extra kinetic energy dissociates independently from the amount of given energy in the studied range.
Structural Properties of ZnO Nanotubes Under Uniaxial Strain: Molecular Dynamics Simulations
Kilic, Mehmet Emin; Erkoç, Şakir (2013-10-01)
Structural properties of zinc oxide nanotubes with zigzag, armchair and chiral geometries have been investigated by performing classical molecular dynamics simulations. An atomistic potential energy function has been used to represent the interactions among the atoms. Strain has been applied to the generated ZnO nanostructures along their length, which has been realized at two different temperatures, 1 K and 300 K. It has been found that ZnO nanostructures following strain application undergo a structural c...
Molecular-dynamics simulation of stepped Si(100) surface
Katırcıoğlu, Şenay; Salman, SA; Erkoc, S (2000-07-01)
We have investigated the relaxation of single and double layer stepped Si(100) surfaces depending on working cell size and heat treatment by MD simulation based on LJ-AT empirical potential energy function. It is found that smooth relaxation can be satisfied for both types of stepped Si(100) surfaces by continuous MD runs. The dependence of relaxation on the size of working cell is found only for single layer stepped Si(100) surface. The total potential energy calculation by MD shows that double layer Si(10...
