Calculation of spinodal decomposition temperature in cubic ternary nitride materials including coherency stress and spontaneous ordering

Abstract

We present a calculation of spinodal decomposition temperatures for a variety of nitride compounds taking into account both the coherency stress and an arbitrary degree of ordering and show that, for a given composition, superstructures tend to have lower decomposition temperatures than random alloys and may therefore be advantageous.
