Abstract

Wetting can be regarded as a kind of effective nanostructure-forming process. To control the structure, a study on the relationship between atomic interactions and the resultant wetting behaviors is required. To model the wetting system, two sets of interatomic potentials for Metal/MgO(100) systems are derived from first principles calculation results for the simple configurations. A molecular dynamics method is applied to simulate the system and shows that Al atoms wet better than Sn atoms on the MgO(100) substrate. This tendency is consistent with the experimental results of contact angles.
