Melting and breaking of ultrathin copper nanobridges

Jeong Won Kang and Ho Jung Hwang
Computational Semiconductor Laboratory, KR

Keywords: Molecular dynamics, Copper, Nanobridge, Melting and Breaking of nanobridge.

Abstract:
The previous studies on nanoclusters and infinite nanowires have shown the physical phenomena related to only the melting of nanoclusters and nanowires. This study showed the various physical phenomena of ultrathin nanobridges, such as the melting and breaking of nanobridges using classical molecular dynamics simulations. Even if this study was confined within eight systems of ultrathin nanobridges, this study has disclosed some interesting features of nanobridges, and the caloric curves and diffusivities of nanobridges provided the information on the melting and breaking points of nanobridges. However, more detail works are still necessary to investigate on the properties of the breaking of nanobridges.
