Comments are made on Barbour’s paper concerning the mobility and diffusion of Ni and Zr in amorphous Ni-Zr alloys. Specifically, the method of Barbour et al. cannot, in principle, be used to determine which species moves faster. (AIP)

    Accurate theoretical predictions of the volume-fraction dependence during diffusion-controlled coarsening of a polydisperse assembly of particles have proved difficult. Here, a new model of coarsening is presented, involving diffusive transport through the coherent interface between ordered and...

    The formation of ridge structures on <100> aligned mesa stripes defined on GaAs (001) substrates has been investigated as a function of the substrate temperature, V/III flux ratio, and GaAs deposition quantity. Across the entire range of deposition conditions employed, the ridge structures were...

    Rate-limiting step, as well as self-limited oxidation of SiGe alloys is so far under controversy. Contrasting to the monoparabolic growth mode for oxidation of Si, a parabolic growth mode and self-limited oxidation of SiGe alloys at different temperature are clearly observed depending on the...

  • Kinetic surface segregation and the evolution of nanostructures. Tersoff, J. // Applied Physics Letters;7/14/2003, Vol. 83 Issue 2, p353 

    As nonplanar structures evolve via surface diffusion, the difference in diffusivity of the alloy components leads to kinetic surface segregation. This drastically affects the rate of shape evolution, and for nanoscale structures, also the final composition distribution. This is illustrated for a...
