Mean-field theory for coarsening faceted surfaces.

Abstract

A mean-field theory is developed for the scale-invariant length distributions observed during the coarsening of generic one-dimensional faceted surfaces. This theory closely follows the Lifshitz-Slyozov-Wagner theory of Ostwald ripening in two-phase systems, but the mechanism of coarsening in faceted surfaces requires the addition of convolution terms… (More)
