The phase-field crystal (PFC-model) is a powerful tool for modelling of the crystallization in colloidal and metallic systems. In the present work, the modified hyperbolic phase-field crystal model for binary systems is presented. This model takes into account slow and fast dynamics of moving interfaces for both concentration and relative atomic number density (which were taken as order parameters). Read More

This review article summarizes the main outcomes following from recently developed theories of stable dendritic growth in undercooled one-component and binary melts. The nonlinear heat and mass transfer mechanisms that control the crystal growth process are connected with hydrodynamic flows (forced and natural convection), as well as with the non-local diffusion transport of dissolved impurities in the undercooled liquid phase. The main conclusions following from stability analysis, solvability and selection theories are presented. Read More

The thin interface limit of the phase-field model is extended to include transport via melt convection. A double-sided model (equal diffusivity in liquid and solid phases) is considered for the present analysis. For the coupling between phase-field and Navier-Stokes equations, two commonly used schemes are investigated using a matched asymptotic analysis: (i) variable viscosity and (ii) drag force model.

The present article is focused on the shapes of dendritic tips occurring in undercooled binary systems in the absence of convection. A circular/globular shape appears in limiting cases of small and large Péclet numbers. A parabolic/paraboloidal shape describes the tip regions of dendrites whereas a fractional power law defines a shape behind their tips in the case of low/moderate Péclet number. Read More

A nonlinear problem with two moving boundaries of the phase transition, which describes the process of directional crystallization in the presence of a quasi-equilibrium two-phase layer, is solved analytically for the steady-state process. The exact analytical solution in a two-phase layer is found in a parametric form (the solid phase fraction plays the role of this parameter) with allowance for possible changes in the density of the liquid phase accordingly to a linearized equation of state and arbitrary value of the solid fraction at the boundary between the two-phase and solid layers. Namely, the solute concentration, temperature, solid fraction in the mushy layer, liquid and solid phases, mushy layer thickness and its velocity are found analytically. Read More

Single-cycle pulses with multimillion volts per centimeter field strengths and spectra in the terahertz (THz) band have attracted great interest due to their ability to coherently manipulate molecular orientations and electron spins resonantly and nonresonantly. The tremendous progress made in the development of compact and powerful terahertz sources have identified intense laser-thin foil interaction as a potential candidate for high-power broadband terahertz radiation. They are micrometers in size and deliver radially polarized terahertz pulses with millijoule energy and gigawatt peak power. Read More

A generalized theory of nucleation and growth of crystals in a metastable (supercooled or supersaturated) liquid is developed taking into account two principal effects: the diffusion mechanism of the particle-size distribution function in the space of particle radii and the unsteady-state growth rates of individual crystals induced by fluctuations in external temperature or concentration field. A system of the Fokker-Planck and balance integro-differential equations is formulated and analytically solved in a parametric form for arbitrary nucleation kinetics and arbitrary growth rates of individual crystals. The particle-size distribution function and system metastability are found in an explicit form. Read More

The boundary integral method for propagating solid/liquid interfaces is detailed with allowance for the thermo-solutal Stefan-type models. Two types of mass transfer mechanisms corresponding to the local equilibrium (parabolic-type equation) and local non-equilibrium (hyperbolic-type equation) solidification conditions are considered. A unified integro-differential equation for the curved interface is derived. Read More

Motivated by important applications in materials science and geophysics, we consider the steady-state growth of anisotropic needle-like dendrites in undercooled binary mixtures with a forced convective flow. We analyse the stable mode of dendritic evolution in the case of small anisotropies of growth kinetics and surface energy for arbitrary Péclet numbers and -fold symmetry of dendritic crystals. On the basis of solvability and stability theories, we formulate a selection criterion giving a stable combination between dendrite tip diameter and tip velocity. Read More

Transport processes around phase interfaces, together with thermodynamic properties and kinetic phenomena, control the formation of dendritic patterns. Using the thermodynamic and kinetic data of phase interfaces obtained on the atomic scale, one can analyse the formation of a single dendrite and the growth of a dendritic ensemble. This is the result of recent progress in theoretical methods and computational algorithms calculated using powerful computer clusters. Read More

Phase-field analysis for the kinetic transition in an ordered crystal structure growing from an undercooled liquid is carried out. The results are interpreted on the basis of analytical and numerical solutions of equations describing the dynamics of the phase field, the long-range order parameter as well as the atomic diffusion within the crystal/liquid interface and in the bulk crystal. As an example, the growth of a binary AB crystal is described, and critical undercoolings at characteristic changes of growth velocity and the long-range order parameter are defined. Read More

In standard descriptions, the master equation can be obtained by coarse-graining with the application of the hypothesis of full local thermalization that is equivalent to the local thermodynamic equilibrium. By contrast, fast transformations proceed in the absence of local equilibrium and the master equation must be obtained with the absence of thermalization. In the present work, a non-Markovian master equation leading, in specific cases of relaxation to local thermodynamic equilibrium, to hyperbolic evolution equations for a binary alloy, is derived for a system with two order parameters.

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) have been shown to play an important role in the immune system, which warrants study of their remarkable potential as pharmacological targets. Activation of TLRs requires participation from specific pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) and accessory proteins such as myeloid differentiation protein 2 (MD2), lipopolysaccharide binding protein (LBP), and cluster differentiation antigen 14 (CD14). Assembly of the TLR4-MD2-LPS complex is essential in TLR4 activation. Read More

The phase-field crystal model (PFC model) resolves systems on atomic length scales and diffusive time scales and lies in between standard phase-field modeling and atomistic methods. More recently a hyperbolic or modified PFC model was introduced to describe fast (propagative) and slow (diffusive) dynamics. We present a finite-element method for solving the hyperbolic PFC equation, introducing an unconditionally stable time integration algorithm. Read More

In this work we show that it is possible to increase the high-order harmonic yield when using wavefront-shaped laser beams. The investigation of the beam profile near the interaction region shows that the optimized beam is asymmetric and has a larger diameter. Thus, the optimized beam leads to a higher yield even if the peak intensity is lower compared to an unoptimized beam. Read More

We observe variable-range hopping conduction in thermal admittance spectroscopy and develop a method to evaluate the signal under this condition. As a relevant example of demonstration we employ Cu(In,Ga)(Se,S)2 thin-film solar cells and show that the fundamental N1 signal, which has been discussed for more than a decade in terms of minority carrier traps, does not display trap parameters, but is generated by the freezing-out of carrier mobility with decreasing temperature when hopping conduction prevails. This effect offers a new approach to carrier hopping and to semiconductors suffering from small mobility. Read More

For the first time to our knowledge, the relative splitting velocity was measured. We compare the experimental data with numerical simulations. Read More
