Calculation of Diffraction Patterns Associated with Electron Irradiation Induced Amorphization of CuTi.

Abstract

A new approach that uses the multislice method in conjunction with molecular dynamics simulations to study electron irradiation induced amorphisation is presented. Diffraction patterns were calculated for CuTi and found to be more sensitive than the pair correlation function to the structural changes preceding amorphisation. The results from this approach and from a study of long range order are presented.
