The growth of Ag nanoclusters in the N range from a few atoms to about 150 atoms was studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations on realistic time scales. It was found that the resulting structure of nanometer Ag clusters depends on kinetic factors and can differ from the minimum-energy structure.

Abstract

The growth of Ag nanoclusters in the N range from a few atoms to about 150 atoms was studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations on realistic time scales. It was found that the resulting structure of nanometer Ag clusters depends on kinetic factors and can differ from the minimum-energy structure.
