Forming Ni_50 Pt_50 Metallic Glass with LJ/EAM Hybrid

Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Tennessee

This page shows visualizations of the evolution of a 500 atom Ni_50 Pt_50 structure.

A 500 atom structure of Ni_50 Pt_50 was created using a hybrid potential of an Embedded Atom Potential and Lennard-Jones. This structure was melted and cooled into a final disordered structure as can be viewed visually. The structure shows certain clusters of both Nickel and Platinum during the 2400 ps simulation. 1
