Phase coexistence in highly deuterated ferroelectric triglycine selenate: Landau description [Article]
(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 [Article]
(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 ...
Thermodynamic study of commensurate-incommensurate phase transitions in Rb2ZnCl4 [Article]
(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 [Article]
(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 ...
