Thermodynamic study of commensurate-incommensurate phase transitions in Rb2ZnCl4
(American Physical Society, 1999)
We have performed simultaneous measurements of heat capacity and dielectric constant on a high-quality single crystal of Rb2ZnCl4 near the commensurate-incommensurate transition area. Maximum heat capacity is found to be ...
Dynamic heat flux experiments in Cu67.64Zn 16.71Al15.65: Separating the time scales of fast and ultra-slow kinetic processes in martensitic transformations
(American Institute of Physics, 2011)
Crackling noise and avalanches during the martensite phase transformation of Cu67.64Zn16.71Al15.65 were investigated. Heat flux measurements with extremely slow heating rates of 0.005 Kh -1 allowed sufficient separation ...
Phase coexistence in highly deuterated ferroelectric triglycine selenate: Landau description
(IOP Publishing Ltd., 2006-12-01)
The phase transition in a 90% deuterated sample of TGSe has been investigated by calorimetric and dielectric measurements. As a consequence of the presence of an internal crack in the sample, the transition takes place in ...
Cellular automata and cluster computing: An application to the simulation of laser dynamics
(World Scientific, 2007)
Firstly, the application of a cellular automata (CA) model to simulate the dynamics of lasers is reviewed. With this kind of model, the macroscopic properties of the laser system emerge as a cooperative phenomenon from ...
