Modeling of Phase Competition and Diffusion Zone Morphology Evolution at Initial Stages of Reaction Diffusion


Article Preview

The initial stages of reactive diffusion have been studied by Monte-Carlo simulations. New MC-scheme describing the competition of two ordered intermediate phases is proposed. Main peculiarity of presented MC-model is a strong dependence of interatomic interaction energies on the local atomic surrounding, enabling us to distinguish new phases more distinctly.
