Title: Large-scale molecular dynamics verification of the Rayleigh-Plesset approximation for collapse of nanobubbles
Abstract: We report large-scale (10(7) atoms in an 85-nm-wide container) molecular simulations of collapse of nanoscopic (5-12 nm in diameter) in liquid argon. During the collapse the pressure on the liquid decreases, and this decrease propagates into liquid at the speed of Despite the nonuniform profile of pressure in the liquid the of the Rayleigh-Plesset equation compares well to the measured of the radius of the void and the velocity of the interface. of liquid into the void does not affect the dynamics appreciably.
