Size & Strain Rate MD Study on Metallic Nanowires

Adrian S. J. Koh's picture

Thank you for your interest shown in my previously posted work.  Here's a post-print for an article of an extension to my previous work.  Extension in the sense that the MD simulation was performed on "larger" metallic nanowires (2.0 nm to 6.0 nm), and the behavior of gold (Au) nanowires were studied.  The mechanism behind strain-induced amorphization was explained and the phenomenon of multiple necking was observed, implying the presence of "localized" amorphization instead of a "globalized" one observed in shorter nanowires.

The phenomenon on localized amorphization was further studied in a subsequent study, published in Nano Letters.
