Abstract

In Chaps. 2 and 3, we described models for the kinetics of phase separation of a binary mixture. We also summarized available results for growth kinetics in the case of pure and isotropic systems. In Chap. 4, we examined the effects of quenched disorder (or impurities) on phase ordering systems, and found that disorder can drastically alter the nature of domain-growth kinetics. In this chapter, we study another experimentally important effect, viz., the presence of surfaces with a preferential attraction for one of the components of the phase-separating mixture.
