Abstract
We report the results of a study of 4HeN clusters, for 2=N=40, adsorbed on one and both sides of a graphene sheet. The ground-state properties are determined using variational and diffusion Monte Carlo calculations at zero temperature, and in addition path integral Monte Carlo simulations at finite temperature are performed for some selected cluster sizes. For the interaction of helium atoms with graphene, we compare several models: a smooth He-graphene potential that depends only on the distanc...
