We have studied atomic mixing in silicon by the classical molecular dynamics method, and directly compared the simulated data to experimental measurements. The relative importance of ballistic collisions and heat spike to the mixing is considered. We obtain a fairly good agreement between experiments and simulations. The heat spike contribution to the total mixing seems to be much lower than that of ballistic collisions.
