Abstract: Using the tightbinding molecular dynamics model (TBMD),Na cluster collision processes have been studied at the different initial conditions.It has been shown that clusters with different geometric structure colliding with same cluster can produce different new cluster.Cluster with solid structure is more feasible to form a stable and large cluster than that of planar structure.For the cluster collision,the collision process is reversible.

Key words: Sodium cluster, Cluster collisions, Tight-binding model
