Presents classical dynamics simulations of Si(CD[sub 3])[sup +][sub 3] ion-scattering from a hexanethiolate self-assembled monolayer on Au(111) and from a clean Au(111) surface. Simulations conducted with a united atom model using repulsive scattering potentials; Prediction of the partitioning of the incident ion kinetic energy into the scattered ion kinetic energy.

    We show that finite-range alternatives to the standard long-range pair potential for silica by van Beest et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 64, 1955 (1990)] might be used in molecular dynamics simulations. We study two such models that can be efficiently simulated since no Ewald summation is required. We...
