Sphere - Plate - Sintering
3D Lattice Kinetic Monte Carlo Simulation
conserved-order-parameter Ising model with nearest neighbor (NN) interaction JNN
f.c.c. lattice (12NNs; JNN/kTc = 0.40837)
here: JNN/kT = 1.5 (for all particles; no evaporation into the gas phase)
color key (left): coordination number from red (monomers) to purple (12NNs)
color key (right): initial affiliation (red=sphere; green=plate)
number of atoms: 8589 (sphere) + 65536 (plate)
f.c.c. <001>-directions are parallel to the simulation cell axes
time is measured in Monte Carlo steps (MCS)
periodic boundary conditions laterally
