Wetting phenomena in the two-dimensional ANNNI model in a field

  • P. Rujan
  • W. Selke
  • G. Uimin


Wetting phenomena at various interface types in the ordered phases of the two-dimensional axial next-nearest neighbour Ising (or ANNNI) model in a field are studied using a transfer matrix approach and Monte Carlo techniques. Different types of wetting at distinct wetting lines or at the bulk phase boundary are identified, which may be tested experimentally in adsorbate systems with a (p×1) ordering, forp equal to two, three or four.
