Green Image
Using nonequilibirum molecular dynamics, we investigate the particle displacements and structural transformations that occur in single crystal silicon when indented with an atomically-sharp diamond tool-bit. We then use image synthesis to visualize atoms in several stressed silicon. Experimentally, these transformations are analyzed with electron or x-ray diffractometry. Using massively parallel computers, we simulate both diffraction techniques.
