On Melting of Two-Dimensional Monolayer Films
Languages of publication
The melting of two-dimensional films formed on the (100) fcc crystal is studied by Monte Carlo simulation. The results obtained suggest that in systems with only weakly corrugated surface potential, exhibiting the hexagonal close packed solid structure, the melting transition is followed by the Ising-type transition as predicted by the theory of Nelson and Halperin. In the case of highly corrugated surface potential, the film forms registered structure which disorders gradually as the temperature is raised.
