Research on Study of Molecular Dynamic Simulation for Liquid-Assisted Laser Beam Micromachining May 2018

• This research involves the use of Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulation technique to investigate the complex and dynamic mechanisms involved in Liquid-Assisted Laser Beam Micromachining (LA-LBMM) process both in static and dynamic mode.

• Developed a simulation at molecular level for Liquid Assisted Laser Beam Micromachining using Molecular Dynamic simulation (MD) with a simulation software called LAMMPS.

• The results of the MD simulation are compared with those of Laser Beam Micromachining (LBMM) performed in air and was results were evidently proven and displayed.
