Compositional uniformity, domain patterning and the mechanism underlying nano-chessboard arrays

Gonzalez, Santiago; Perez-Mato, J M; Elcoro, Luis; Garcia, Alberto; Withers, Raymond; Bourgeois, Laure


We propose that systems exhibiting compositional patterning at the nanoscale, so far assumed to be due to some kind of ordered phase segregation, can be understood instead in terms of coherent, single phase ordering of minority motifs, caused by some constrained drive for uniformity. The essential features of this type of arrangement can be reproduced using a superspace construction typical of uniformity-driven orderings, which only requires the knowledge of the modulation vectors observed in...[Show more]
