The dynamical response of metallic clusters up to 10(3) atoms is investigated using the restricted molecular dynamics simulations scheme. Exemplarily, a sodium like material is considered. Correlation functions are evaluated to investigate the spatial structure of collective electron excitations and the optical response of laser-excited clusters. In particular, the spectrum of bilocal correlation functions shows resonances representing different modes of collective excitations inside the nano…

Spatially resolved collective excitations of nano-plasmas via molecular dynamics simulations and fluid dynamics
Collective excitations in nano-plasmas are described by dynamical bi-local auto-correlation functions. These excitations, which are related to the plasmon excitations in bulk plasmas, arise in the
Collective Excitations of Finite‐Temperature Nano Plasmas
Electron density fluctuations as well as current density correlations are considered for excited nano plasmas. Calculations are performed by classical MD simulations at high temperatures for
Relaxation and Collective Excitations of Cluster Nano-Plasmas
Nano-plasmas produced, e.g. in clusters after short-pulse laser irradiation, can show collective excitations as derived from the time evolution of fluctuations in thermodynamic equilibrium. Molecular

Inverse bremsstrahlung heating rate in atomic clusters irradiated by femtosecond laser pulses
In the interaction of atomic clusters with femtosecond laser pulses, nanoplasmas with high density and high temperature are created. The heating is mainly determined by inverse bremsstrahlung (IB)
