Molecular dynamic studies of quenching

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Research units


Molecular dynamics has been used to simulate the rapid quenching of a liquid sample to obtain an amorphous state. Two systems were considered: a sample of 1372 Ne-atoms with a Lennard-Jones potential and an Fe85B15-mixture of 1204 atoms interacting by Morse-type potentials. Results show that molecular dynamics quenching is a usable method to produce amorphous structures.
