Order-disorder criticality, wetting, and morphological phase transitions in the irreversible growth of far-from-equilibrium magnetic films


An exhaustive numerical investigation of the growth of magnetic films in confined (d + 1)-dimensional stripped geometries (d = 1, 2) is carried out by means of extensive Monte Carlo simulations. Films in contact with a thermal bath at temperature T , are grown by adding spins having two possible orientations and considering ferromagnetic (nearest-neighbor… (More)
