[lammps-users] MEAM potential

Dear lammps-users,

I want to simulate surface properties of Pt nanoparticles using MEAM potentials, but I’m not sure whether the potentials are suitable since the parameters for MEAM are fit to the bulk parameters of the metal. Does anyone give some suggestion?

Best Regards,


I seem to recall a paper that came out a few years ago regarding “surface EAM”. I’m not sure of the authors or material (although I’m almost positive it was an FCC metal), but you should do a literature search on that subject.
