Guided Assembly of Nanostructures via Elastic Interactions

  title={Guided Assembly of Nanostructures via Elastic Interactions},
  author={Yucun Lou and John L. Bassani},
A solid solution can spontaneously separate into phases that self-assemble into patterns. This process can be guided via external fields to form ordered microand nanostructures. In this paper, we demonstrate that notions of interaction energies provide powerful insights into the coupling of these fields with the properties of the alloy. A phase-field model is developed that incorporates chemical, interfacial, and elastic energies, including heterogeneous elastic properties, and couples… CONTINUE READING
