|Title:||Nonequilibrium wetting transition in a nonthermal 2D Ising model||Authors:||HOOYBERGHS, Jef

|Issue Date:||2011||Publisher:||SPRINGER||Source:||EUROPEAN PHYSICAL JOURNAL B, 81(2). p. 155-163||Abstract:||Nonequilibrium wetting transitions are observed in Monte Carlo simulations of a kinetic spin system in the absence of a detailed balance condition with respect to an energy functional. A nonthermal model is proposed starting from a two-dimensional Ising spin lattice at zero temperature with two boundaries subject to opposing surface fields. Local spin excitations are only allowed by absorbing an energy quantum (photon) below a cutoff energy E (c) . Local spin relaxation takes place by emitting a photon which leaves the lattice. Using Monte Carlo simulation nonequilibrium critical wetting transitions are observed as well as nonequilibrium first-order wetting phenomena, respectively in the absence or presence of absorbing states of the spin system. The transitions are identified from the behavior of the probability distribution of a suitably chosen order parameter that was proven useful for studying wetting in the (thermal) Ising model.||Notes:||[Hooyberghs, J.] VITO, Flemish Inst Technol Res, B-2400 Mol, Belgium.
