Numerical study of microphase separation in gels and random media

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Microphase separation in gels and random media is numerically studied using a Ginzburg-Landau model. A random field destroys long-range orientational (lamellar) order and gives rise to a disordered bicontinuous morphology. The dependence of the correlation length on the field strength is distinct from that of random-field magnets.
