    Peculiarities of contact formation in the system NbN-GaAs upon a change in the structural-phase state of the deposited metal are investigated. It is shown that the role of the chemical factor in the processes of contact formation decreases as the degree of structural perfection of the NbN alloy...

    A polymer chain near a penetrable interface is studied in the Gaussian model, in the lattice random walk model and by a scaling analysis. The interface is modeled as an external potential u of a Heaviside step-function form. One end of the chain is fixed at a distance z[sub 0] away from this...

    Quasi-static orientation transitions in nematic-cholesteric liquid crystal (LC) droplets occurring in an isotropic environment in a constant electric field have been studied as dependent on the concentration of a chiral (cholesteric) dopant. In the case where the droplet radius is smaller than...
