Atomistic simulation of the structure and elastic properties of gold nanowires
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.
