Abstract: The melting and crystallization temperatures of platinum nanoclusters have been found by using results of molecular dynamics modeling, obtained employing two different computer programs and different interatomic interaction potentials. The size dependences found in computer experiments are compared with molecular dynamics data of other authors and with estimations of the melting temperature using Thomson’s formula.
Keywords: nanoclusters of platinum; molecular dynamics; tight-binding potential, embedded atom method, melting temperature, crystallization temperature.
