Abstract - The method of molecular dynamics has been used to study the bombardment of a copper film onsupported graphene by Ar13 clusters with kinetic energies of 5, 10, 20 and 30 eV and different anglesof incidence. It is obtained that the cluster energy should be in the interval 20–30 eV for effective graphenecleaning. There is no cleaning effect at vertical incidence (θ =0°) of Ar13 clusters. The bombardmentsat 45° and 90° incident angles are the most effective ones at a moderate and big amount of depositedcopper respectively.
