The Molecular Dynamics Simulation on the Diamond-Like Carbon Films
任 坤 ：北京工业大学，电子信息与工程学院，北京
The research and application of the diamond-like carbon films are very extensive since it was found due to the superior properties. Therefore, we had begun to study using molecular simulation methods in order to get better properties and explore better structure as early as the 1980s. In this background, the paper describes the development of the case of the diamond-like carbon films’ study, and gives a brief summary for the representative study of each period. Then, we point out some of the key issues that the diamond-like simulation faces and give the prospect for its future development at the end of this paper.
