Abstract: In the framework of this paper we have studied the thermal stability of copper clusters in the range of 100 – 150 atoms. The size of the copper nanocluster is determined, which has the greatest thermal stability in the size range under consideration.
Keywords: molecular dynamics, tight-binding potential, copper nanoclusters, melting point, thermal stability.
