On these pages you will find further information on publications of R. Kissel and H.M. Urbassek. This information has been referenced to by some of the publications and includes further movies. These visualisations of our simulations may clarify our results. Or, if you are not so much of a physicist, you may just consider them beautiful to look at. Anyway, enjoy the show!
The movies come in mpeg format, you may view them with normal mpeg players such as mpeg_play or a similar program.
Movie showing the time evolution of the pressure (virial part). The movie shows one simulated event out of 8. The pressure has been averaged over spheres of 6.2 A. The color code represents the pressure in units of the bulk modulus of gold.
Movie of another event. This time the color code represents the temperature in units of the melting temperature of gold (1338K).
Voila our movie of the velocity study. The arrows represent velocities averaged in blocks of radius 6.2 A, drawn from the center of these blocks. The arrow lengths representing the velocity equivalent to the melting temperature of gold can be seen in the upper right corner of the movie. It's a cross sectional view of our system.
And this happens if you've got a bug in your potential.
Movie of a simulation with the Colla Potential. We simulate and visualize 20ps, one picture per 0.1 ps. Color code represents the temperature in units of the melting temperature of Au.
Movie of the same simulation, same event, only this time with the Nordlund potential.
Perspective and cross-sectional view of the lift-off study with E_0=5eV/Atom in a demi-sphere below the Au cluster on Au substrate.
Movie of the same simulation, only this time with E_0=15eV. Like a cannonball!
