    A derivation is presented for the fraction of material transformed as a function of time, X(t), for one-dimensional phase transformations which occur via continuous nucleation and growth and which produce anisotropic particles. This derivation, which accounts for shielding effects and does not...

    This paper reports on the results of investigations into the magnetic ordering of magnets with integer spins of ions and sufficiently strong easy-plane single-ion anisotropy. It is demonstrated that magnetic ordering in the studied systems occurs through a displacive magnetic phase transition....

    The effect of induced uniaxial anisotropy on the properties and parameters of the domain structure and phase transitions in yttrium-iron garnet (YIG) films is investigated. Based on the measurements and the derived formulas we determine the difference between the magnetization and the uniaxial...

    A new technique for testing long-range order in high-absorption anisotropic crystals has been developed using conversion of an incident p-(s-)wave to an s-(p-)wave due to optical anisotropy.

    We perform molecular dynamics simulations to model the self-organization and phase behavior of reversibly aggregated linear model polymers. In our model the monomers interact via a Lennard-Jones-type potential with anisotropic attraction. In addition to the usual Lennard-Jones parameters the...
