Mathematical modelling radiation impact on nanostructures


The main methods for simulating the impact of radiation on nanostructures are considered. The quantum mechanical density functional method and the semi-empirical density functional tight-binding method are chosen on the basis of an analysis of their applicability to studying the formation of radiation defects in nanostructures in different ranges of space-time. The results from simulating vacancy formation in carbon and boron nitride nanostructures under the impact of H and O atoms with energies of 1–200 eV are presented.
