Abstract

We have performed for the first time a molecular dynamics simulation of the adsorption of gas-phase Ag particles on a graphite substrate to provide an insight into the results of a comprehensive STM-based experiment on this system. Both pair-wise and many-body interatomic potentials have been employed, and a Morse-type Ag–C potential was specifically constructed to describe the interactions at the interface. Our simulation has successfully reproduced a significant portion of the experimental findings. We have also observed the intercalation of silver in graphite.
