Atomistic simulation of the structure and elastic properties of gold nanowires

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The atomistic simulations for free surfaces on structure and elastic properties of gold nanowires, were investigated. A static relaxation on the assemblage was also performed. A uniform uniaxial strain was incrementally applied to 1.2% to the relaxed nanowires in molecular statics framework. The results show that 〈1 1 1〉 wires exhibited an increase in one of Poisson's ratios and small change in the other with decrease of cross-sectional area.
