Re: [lammps-users] adding energy to a single atom

Hi Axel

For my experimental configuration, ions are deposited. So, besides kinect energy, there is ionization potential energy. This energy is released as heat when the ion becomes a neutral. So I am trying to mimic this. I was thinking in add this energy as more velocity for the incoming ions, but I will spend that energy in stopping. It is a slightly different scenario. Do you think it is the only way?

Thank you

Dear LAMMPS users and developers,

   I would like to add no translational energy to a single atom (heat).
This single atom is an addatom inserted by "fix deposit" that I want to
release thermal energy after being stopped by the substrate.
  I have tried to use "fix heat" but I got a message: "Fix heat group has
no atoms" even after deposition.

fix deposit allows you to add a kinetic energy, i.e. velocity to deposited
atoms. that energy is automatically released (or rather transferred) to the
substrate, when the atoms collide with it.

  Additionaly, I want to add energy only to atoms just deposited, not to
the atoms deposited many steps before.

​you sound like you are talking about some other kind of "internal" energy,
however with classical MD point particles there is only kinetic energy.
