Abstract:

This project proposed to determine if a purely microscopic model of laser-cluster interactions is valid and, if it is valid, use the model to understand the microscopic origin of observed macroscopic phenomena. The short term objective of determining a correct laser-cluster model also aids in the overarching objective of developing a microscopic laser-solid model. Using a hybrid quantum-classical model the laser-cluster interaction is simulated atomistically, tracking and moving each particle using molecular dynamics. Experimental signals were reproduced through the simulation and compared in order to validate or invalidate our model.
