Abstract

Gas-phase condensation of 85000 copper atoms is examined by molecular dynamics simulation with a tight-binding potential. Various techniques of synthesis are considered. A detailed study of the evolution of the system cooled at a various rate presented. Accurate dependence between cooling rate of system, the size and the form synthesized clusters is shown.
