Snapshots (image) Pensoft Publishers Share Print E-Mail Caption These are snapshots of a simulated 150 fs trajectory of a C atom that has received 15 eV of kinetic energy from an energetic electron, based on a density functional theory molecular dynamics (Susi et al. 2014). After a complex out-of-plane movement, the silicon-carbon bond is inverted.
