Bredesen Center, University of Tennessee

This page shows visualizations of phase separation kinetics in Ni-Ag alloy.

Classical simulations were performed to investigate the phase separtion kinetics in the Ni0.5-Ag0.5 alloy. Using the fundamental material science concepts.1 Following interative simulations represents, the cross-section of Sphere configuration of the Ni-Ag alloy at various temperatures where the thin layer at the outer(blue) where the Ag atoms alligned, red represents the Ni atoms.
