Thermodynamic aspects of chemically curved crystals

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The thermodynamic stability of an elastic material with a constant concentration gradient is analysed in linear approximation within the framework of the Ginzburg-Landau theory including an external inhomogeneous field. The result suggests ways to produce stress-free, paraboloidically curved finite size crystals.
