Abstract

A computational study of coalescence and scattering phenomena occurring in colliding nanoclusters is presented. Molecular dynamics simulations have been carried out for different impact velocities for nanoclusters governed by the Lennard-Jones potential. The cluster collisions may result in coalescence, partial scattering, scattering followed by eversion, or total disintegration, depending on the impact velocity. Parameters of interest such as relative cluster deformation, energy conversion and number of scattered atoms have been calculated and analysed in order shed light on the dynamics of the interaction.
