This article is a brief review of coarsening phenomena occurring in systems where quenched features—such as random field, varying coupling constants or lattice vacancies—spoil homogeneity. We discuss the current understanding of the problem in ferromagnetic systems with a non-conserved scalar order parameter by focusing primarily on the form of the growth law of the ordered domains and on the scaling properties.

Coarsening in inhomogeneous systems

Abstract

This article is a brief review of coarsening phenomena occurring in systems where quenched features—such as random field, varying coupling constants or lattice vacancies—spoil homogeneity. We discuss the current understanding of the problem in ferromagnetic systems with a non-conserved scalar order parameter by focusing primarily on the form of the growth law of the ordered domains and on the scaling properties.
