Spontaneous crystallization of a large Pt nanoparticle

  • 1. Aalto University


This is a video of a "large" (16384 atoms) Pt nanoparticle solidifying from 3000 K down to 300 K over 1 ns of molecular dynamics, modeled with a GAP interatomic potential for platinum [1]. One can observe how the formation of the stable bulk fcc motifs is nucleated inward from the surface. A paper reference will be added when available.
