Abstract

In this letter, we examine the effects of discrete mobile dislocations on spinodal decomposition kinetics in lattice mismatched binary alloys. By employing a novel continuum model, we demonstrate that the effects of dislocation mobility on domain coarsening kinetics can be expressed in a unified manner through a scaling function, describing a crossover from t12 to t13 behavior.
