Molecular dynamics simulation of the solidification behavior of liquid nickel nanowires has been carried out based on the embedded atom potential with different cooling rates. The nanowires constructed with a face-centered cubic structure and a one-dimensional (1D) periodical boundary condition along the wire axis direction. It is found that the final structure of Ni nanowires strongly depend on the cooling rates during solidification from liquid. With decreasing cooling rates the final structure of the nanowires varies from amorphous to crystalline via helical multi-shelled structure.
