Keywords: dynamics of nanocrater formation, Coulomb explosion, molecular dynamics, interaction potentials

The aim of this work is to study the dynamics of nanocrater formation induced by Coulomb explosion. The Molecular Dynamics (MD) method is used with realistic interaction potentials. The time and space distribution of density, pressure and temperature of the simulated Si sample and, finally, the time-velocity dependence of the charges and neutrals yield are investigated.
