The Investigation of the Self-Assembly of Crossed Multi-Shell Gold Nanowires
In this study, the molecular dynamics is employed to simulate the selfassembly of crossed gold nanowires at various temperatures. The nanowires with a multi-shell helical (HMS) structure are different from those of the bulk FCC structure. This work compares the morphology of crossed HMS nanowires with 7-1 structure after self-assembly and investigates the atom motion trajectory on the joint. The structure transform are observed from helical structure to FCC structure by angular correlation function (ACF). The results can be suggested for a nano-scale circuit design.
