Abstract

Nanocluster impact on a free-standing graphene is performed by the molecular dynamics simulation, and the dynamical motion of the free-standing graphene is investigated. The graphene is bended by the incident nanocluster, and a transverse deflection wave isotropically propagated in the graphene is observed. We find that the time evolution of the deflection is semiquantitatively described by the linear theory of elasticity. We also analyze the time evolution of the temperature profile of the graphene, and the analysis based on the least dissipation principle reproduces the result in the early stage of impact.
