Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Elongation of Copper–Platinum Nanocontacts

The formation of nanocontacts consisting of copper (Cu) and platinum (Pt) atoms at various temperatures (0–300 K), relative concentrations of platinum atoms (0–20%), and elongation directions [100],

Formation of Cu–Pt nanocontacts in STM breaking junction simulations: MD simulations and one-dimensional diffusion model

In this paper, we propose a new theoretical approach that combines classical MD method and a one-dimensional diffusion model. We have shown that our approach allows to extrapolate the results of MD

Molecular dynamics simulation of the formation of Cu-Pt nanocontacts in the mechanically controlled break junction experiments.

The structure of the breaking area is almost independent of the temperature and the stretching direction due to the strong Cu-Pt interaction and has been investigated by means of the radial distribution function method.

Computational Tools to Study and Predict the Long-Term Stability of Nanowires.

held in 2007, Gordon Moore recognized that by about 2020, his law would come up against the laws of physics. Furthermore, he recognized a change in a paradigm: the replacement of the top-down
