Title: Effect of polarization forces on carbon deposition on a non-spherical nanoparticle. Monte Carlo simulations [Effect of polarization forces on atom deposition on a non-spherical nanoparticle. Monte Carlo simulations]

Trajectories of a polarizable species (atoms or molecules) in the vicinity of a negatively charged nanoparticle (at a floating potential) are considered. The atoms are pulled into regions of strong electric field by polarization forces. The polarization increases the deposition rate of the atoms and molecules at the nanoparticle. The effect of the non-spherical shape of the nanoparticle is investigated by the Monte Carlo method. The shape of the non-spherical nanoparticle is approximated by an ellipsoid. The total deposition rate and its flux density distribution along the nanoparticle surface are calculated. As a result, it is shown that the flux density is not uniform along the surface. It is maximal at the nanoparticle tips.
