1. David Saada, myself and Rafi Kalish built samples of diamond in the computer.

  2. We used Molecular Dynamics (solving Newton's Equations of Motion) on samples of up to 5120 atoms with high-quality, realistic but classical potentials.

  3. We irradiated the samples with 1-12 external atoms to simulate the end of the damage cascade. We then annealed the samples.

  4. We watched what happened using visualization software developed in the Computational Physics Group at the Technion based on OpenGL. (This software provided the basis for our AViz package.)

I will now show you a video of these visualizations.
