Ab-initio simulations of the optical properties of warm dense gold.

Abstract

Using a combination of classical and ab-initio molecular dynamics simulations, we calculate the structure and the electrical conductivity of warm dense gold during the first picoseconds after a short-pulse laser illumination. We find that the ions remain in their initial fcc structure for several picoseconds, despite electron temperatures ranging from a few… (More)
