Özet

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.
