The effect of disordered substrate on crystallization in 2D.

Summary of "The effect of disordered substrate on crystallization in 2D."

In this work the effect of amorphous substrate on crystallization is addressed. By performing Monte-Carlo simulations of solid on solid models we explore the effect of the disorder on crystal growth. The disorder is introduced via local geometry of the lattice, where local connectivity and transition rates are varied from site to site. A comparison to an ordered lattice is accomplished and for both, ordered and disordered substrates, an optimal growth temperature is observed. Moreover, we find that under specific conditions the disordered substrate may have a beneficial effect on crystal growth, i.e., better crystallization as a direct consequence of the presence of disorder.&#13.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

A set of opposing, nonequilibrium reactions catalyzed by different enzymes which act simultaneously, with at least one of the reactions driven by ATP hydrolysis. The results of the cycle are that ATP energy is depleted, heat is produced and no net substrate-to-product conversion is achieved. Examples of substrate cycling are cycling of gluconeogenesis and glycolysis pathways and cycling of the triglycerides and fatty acid pathways. Rates of substrate cycling may be increased many-fold in association with hypermetabolic states resulting from severe burns, cold exposure, hyperthyroidism, or acute exercise.
