Au@void@AgAu Yolk-Shell Nanoparticles with Dominant Strain Effects: A Molecular Dynamics Simulation.

Au@void@AgAu yolk-shell nanoparticles with different morphologies were studied by classical molecular dynamics simulation. The results indicated that all of simulated yolk-shell nanoclusters with ∼3.8 nm size and different morphologies are unstable at room temperature, and collapse of the shell atoms into the void space completely fills it and creates more… CONTINUE READING
