Molecular dynamics simulations are used to study the assembly of metallic nanoclusters using manipulation process. These particles are assumed as potential building blocks for bottom-up manufacturing of nanoscale structures. One of the key factors in the assembly of nanoclusters is their precise positioning by a manipulation system. Prediction of the corresponding behavior under the influence of working conditions is of crucial importance for planning of controlled positioning and assembly of nanoclusters. The focus of the present research is on ultra-fine metallic nanoclusters. The effects of material type and manipulation strategy on the success of the process are investigated by molecular dynamics. Such qualitative simulation studies can evaluate the chance of success of a certain nanopositioning scenario regarding different working conditions before consuming high experimental expenses.
