Abstract

Abstract The room temperature structure of aluminum, copper and gold infinite nanowires is studied. The molecular dynamics simulation method and the same type of the embedded atom potentials made by Voter and coworkers are used. It was found that multi-shelled and various filled metallic nanowires exist depending on the metal and the initial configuration. The results were compared with previous simulations for gold nanowires using different type of the potential.
