The dynamics of structural transitions in sodium chloride clusters
Journal of Chemical Physics
In recent experiments on sodium chloride clusters structural transitions between nanocrystals with different cuboidal shapes were detected. Here we presents results for the thermodynamics and dynamics of one of these clusters, (NaCl)35Cl-. As the time scales for the structural transitions can be much longer than those accessible by conventional dynamics simulations, we use a master equation to describe the probability flow within a large sample of potential energy minima. We characterize thedoi:10.1063/1.480465 fatcat:am3w22afwjg4pisbmhq2evsmvi
