Abstract

Ground-state phase diagrams of ultrathin epitaxial alloy films were studied by using a discrete lattice-model Hamiltonians. An infinite number of commensurate, long-period stripe-superstructure ground states were obtained as a function of chemical potential in the bulk-immiscible alloy systems. The results showed that the average periodicity of the given stripe superstructures was nonmonotonic function of alloy composition with respect to the predictions of continuum theories for two-dimensional systems with competing interactions.
