Hi there,

I am trying to deposit Cd particles on a CdTe substrate using BOP. I need incident energy of Cd having 0.14 eV value. I have calculated the velocity corresponding to this energy (0.14*1.6*10^(-19) = 1/2mv^2) and got 4.9 in the metal unit. I used this as the vertical velocity of Cd (i.e. Vz -4.9 -4.9) in fix deposit. I compared the KE of Cd deposited atom using Compute command as Compute ke all ke/atom. This gives a strange value of KE 6.55 eV instead of 0.14 eV. Could you give some suggestions about the mistake I made? The velocity I have got from the above calculation is correct. I really appreciate your suggestions.

Thank you.

Best,
