WETTING PHENOMENA AT DOMAIN BOUNDARIES.

View publication

Abstract

Interfaces between the three physically distinct, but equivalent domains in the (3 multiplied by 1) phase of lattice gas models for the adsorbate systems O/Pd(110) and H/Fe(110) are studied. At the wetting transition, the interface or wall between two domains decomposes into two walls of a different type separated by a macroscopically thick region of the third domain. Using mainly Monte Carlo techniques, the characteristic walls are identified and wetting transition lines are determined for phase diagrams in the coverage-temperature plane.
