Soft-wall domain-growth kinetics of twofold-degenerate ordering

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The domain growth in a two-dimensional twofold-degenerate system with soft domain walls is shown to obey dynamical scaling. The value of the growth exponent is n 0.25 which differs from the classical Lifshitz-Allen-Cahn prediction n=(1/2), but accords with recent findings for other growth models with soft walls. The results suggest that domain-wall softness may be more important than the degeneracy of the ground state for a possible universal classification of domain-growth kinetics.
