Lenard Jones coefficients for Neon atoms

Dear All,

I am testing my TCL force algorithm with a two Neon atom system.

The simulation is expected to push the two atoms together so that their
Vander Walls radii overlap. I like to see the energy profile of this system
due to the squeezing.

Do I have to, make any corrections somewhere to introduce Vander Walls
coefficients for this system (neon atoms)?
In that case is there a standard way to select these coefficients?
I found various literature, giving different opinions about this matter and
I am kind of confused.

I appreciate any insight into this matter.
