Molecular-dynamics simulation of radiation damage on copper clusters

Erkoç, Şakir
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.

Molecular-dynamics simulations of water clusters
Erkoç, Şakir; Guneyler, E (2000-07-01)
The local minimum geometries and corresponding energy values of water clusters, [(H2O)(n), n = 2-8], have been investigated by using the molecular dynamics simulation method. In the simulations two different potential energy functions of central-force model, CF and CF2, have been used. Particular attention was paid to investigate the effectiveness of these two empirical potential energy functions. CF has been used for n = 2 only, whereas CF2 has been used for n = 2-8. The cage structure of the water cluster...
Stability of gold clusters: molecular-dynamics simulations
Erkoç, Şakir (2000-09-01)
Structural stability and energetics of gold clusters, Au, (n = 3-555), have been investigated by molecular-dynamics simulations. An empirical model potential energy function has been used in the simulations. Stable structures of the microclusters for n = 3-13 have been determined by molecular-dynamics simulation. It has been found that gold microclusters prefer to form three-dimensional compact structures. Molecular-dynamics simulations have also been performed for spherical gold clusters generated from FCC...

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....
Cluster, surface and bulk properties of ZnCd binary alloys: Molecular-dynamics simulations
Erkoç, Şakir (2005-01-01)
The structural and electronic properties of isolated neutral Zn Cd-n clusters for m+n <= 3 have been investigated by performing density functional theory calculations at B3LYP level. The optimum geometries, vibrational frequencies, electronic structures, and the possible dissosiation channels of the clusters considered have been obtained. An empirical many-body potential energy function (PEF), which comprices two- and three-body atomic interactions, has been developed to investigate the structural features ...
Molecular-dynamics investigation of the dynamic properties of Pd and Al metals, and their alloys
Çoruh, Ali; Tomak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2003)
The dynamic properties of Palladium (Pd) and Aluminum (Al) metals and their alloys are investigated by means of Molecular Dynamics using the Quantum Sutton-Chen force field in five different concentrations. Calculations have been carried out for liquid structures. Although this study is done for liquid structures, basic solid state properties are also investigated to prove the validity of potential parameters. Results are compared with each other and with experimental, theoretical and simulated results. Liq...
