The results of the investigation of deposition processes of nanofilms formation on amorphous porous anodic aluminum oxide substrates, based on which it is possible to create various optic highly sensitive nanosensors, are presented in this research. The study was carried out by molecular dynamics simulation. The modified embedded atom method was used for calculation, temperature and pressure were maintained by Nose–Hoover thermostat and barostat. The different types of atoms were deposited on aluminum oxide substrates. The aims of investigation were understanding of process mechanisms of nanofilms forming and of process of filling nanopores with atoms of various substances and establishing the basic parameters governing these processes. The results of modeling the processes of precipitation of pure molecular sulfide of zinc and with the addition of additives in the form of copper atoms and manganese sulfide molecules are presented.



The investigation was carried out in the frameworks of support by the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (projects No 18-10-1-29) and financial support of Russian Science Foundation (project No 15-19-10002).
