Extracting surface atoms
« on: April 03, 2018, 04:01:47 PM »
Hi,

Is it possible to extract only the surface atoms from a rough spherical particle?

Thanks

Hi,

It depends on what would you consider a good criterion to identify those surface atoms. Do you think a simple coordination number threshold would work to discriminate those atoms from the interior atoms?
