Coalescence kinetics of bare and hydrogen-coated silicon nanoparticles : A molecular dynamics study


One of the significant challenges in the use of nanoparticles is the control of primary particle size and extent of agglomeration when grown from the gas phase. In this paper we consider the role of surface passivation of the rate of nanoparticle coalescence. We have studied the coalescence of bare and H-coated silicon nanoparticles of sizes between 2–6 nm… (More)
