Molecular dynamics study of the surface melting of iron clusters
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2005

Molecular dynamics simulations have been used to study the surface melting of iron clusters. It is found that, even when the temperature is several hundreds of Kelvin below the cluster melting point, the crystalline center of the cluster is surrounded by surface atoms that exhibit large amplitude diffusion from their original positions. This results in surface melting of the cluster.
