Abstract.

We present a detailed study of the deposition of small sodium clusters on a NaCl surface. To that end, we use a microscopic model based on the Time-Dependent Local Density Approximation (TDLDA) for electrons, coupled to classical Molecular Dynamics (MD) for ions. We discuss in particular the deposition mechanism for different initial cluster velocities and demonstrate that extremely slow velocities are necessary to ensure a cluster deposition without damaging the original cluster.
