Recent Animations

There are seven animations linked on this page. Five animations are from the work of Zbigniew Postawa and shows the effect of C60 bombardment of Ag. Two are from Arnaud Delcorte's work of Ar sputtering of polystyrene on Ag. They exhibit high and low action events. Enjoy!

C60 Bombardment of Ag{111}
15 keV Ga and C60 Trajectories from Ref 252 [0-29ps] Caution - These movie files are compressed so the codec must be executed first. The files are in .avi format and are 23 Mb each. Feel free to use the trajectories but please reference article #252. For information on getting the codec to work on a Mac.
Sample Trajectory from Ref 246 Caution - The file is in .avi format and is 71 Mb. Feel free to use the trajectories but please reference article #246.

Polystyrene/Ag - high and low action

The two trajectories presented below exhibit the diversity of sputtering events. These trajectories come from the work of Arnaud Delcorte (Ref 198 and 206 below) of sputtering of polystyrene tetramers on a metal surface. Below is Figure 2 of Ref 206. The trajectories have been categorized according to ejection yield of molecules and action in the Ag substrate.

High Action Sample Trajectories Caution - the files are in .avi format and are about 20 Mb each. Feel free to use the trajectories but please reference the articles below and acknowledge Carolyn M. McQuaw and Edward J. Smiley for making the animations.
