Fig2: interatomic effective potential estimated from the theoretical fits of viscosity as a function of temperature. The total potential (continuous line) is the sum of a Thomas-Fermi component (dashed-dotted line) representing the ion-ion Coulomb repulsion screened by the electron gas, and of a Born-Mayer component (dashed line) stemming from the Pauli repulsion of overlapping electron shells.
