We have modeled electronic sputtering of solid krypton by excimer production with molecular dynamics. Both excimer evolution in the solid and deexcitation processes have been incorporated in the simulation. The excimer dynamics in the lattice has been analyzed: the excimers formed near the surface shift upwards whereas those formed in the bulk contribute to long-range collision sequences directed along crystal rows. Singlet and triplet excitations showed considerable differences in their behavior. The defects introduced in the target strongly influenced the development of the phenomena. Good agreement of simulation results with experimental data has been achieved.
