The Ground States of the FCC Alloy Films
We have investigated the ground states of the fcc alloy films in the (001) direction using the Monte-Carlo simulation. The surface field is introduced to describe the surface effects such as surface segregation. The variation of the ground states as a function of the film layer number is determined. The ground states for the films with even layer numbers and odd layer numbers show different variation tendency as the layer number increases. The phase diagrams of the ground states are obtained.
