Chemically induced grain boundary dynamics, forced motion by curvature, and the appearance of double seams

Abstract

The free boundary model of diffusion-induced grain boundary motion derived in Cahn et al. [3], Fife et al. [6] and Cahn & Penrose [4] is extended, in the case of thin metallic films, to account for bidirectional motion, together with the appearance of S-shapes and double seam configurations. These are often observed in the laboratory. Computer simulations based on the extended model are given to illustrate these and other features of bidirectional motion. More generally, the extension accounts for the motion of grain boundaries whose traces on the film's surface are curved. The new free boundary model is one of forced motion by curvature, the forcing term possibly changing sign due to the bidirectionality. The thin film model is derived systematically under explicit assumptions, and an adjustment for grooving is included.
