Analysis of Oxygen Segregation at Metal-Oxide Interfaces Using a New Lattice Monte Carlo Method
The presence of atomic oxygen at internal metal-ceramic oxide interfaces significantly affects the physical properties of the interfaces which in turn affects the bulk properties of the material. We address this problem for the case of a constant source of oxygen at the surface and periodic arrangements of ceramic oxide (MgO) inclusions embedded in a metal (Ag) matrix. We simulate the time-dependence of the oxygen concentration into the material using a newly developed lattice Monte Carlo method that takes into account a constant source of diffusant.
