Detection Method

Dear lammps users,

Please, any help how can we implement detection Method in lammps code of the sputtered flux for ion bombardment of organic materials.


What is the detection method. Do you simply want to count how many atoms
leave the simulation box due to sputtering?


Many thanks to your email, Pr.Steve.

Yes, we want to count how many atoms and/or molecules that leave de simulation box. We want also to analyze the time dependence of the emission process and the composition of the sputtered flux.


The thermo_style command lets you output the current atom count. You can
use the same keyword in a variable as input to fix ave/time and monitor
it as often as you wish. Fix ave/time also has an option to output to a file.
