Calculation of ttm parametters

Dear lammps users,

I want to calculate the two temperature model(TTM) parameters in the lammps.And how can I apply the laser energy

So, I would like to know how they calculated following ttm parameters.

 1.C_e  = electronic specific heat
 2.rho_e = electronic density
 3.kappa_e = electronic thermal conductivity
 4.gamma_p = friction coefficient due to electron-ion interactions (mass/time units)
 5.gamma_s = friction coefficient due to electronic stopping 
 6.v_0 = electronic stopping critical velocit

And also I would like know which potential was use for iron(Fe)

Reference paper:D M Duffy 1 , 2 and A M Rutherford 1.J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 19 (2007) 016207 (11pp).doi:10.1088/0953-8984/19/1/016207.

Thank you

Paul may be able to give more details.
