Paper on the Numerical Modeling of Metallic Nano-Tips

Josip Mihaljevic, Jens Niegemann, Christian Hafner and I submitted a paper on the numerical modeling of metallic nano-tips to Quantum Matter. My contribution deals with the simulation of laser-induced electron emission from such tips. A visualization of the process is shown below.

Snapshots of electrons in an electrostatic field (not visible) after emission from a (simplified) metallic nanotip by an impinging femtosecond laser pulse impinging.
