Front propagation in a phase field model with phase-dependent heat absorption

By Konstantin B Blyuss, Peter Ashwin, C David Wright and Andrew P Bassom


We present a model for the spatio-temporal behaviour of films exposed to radiative heating, where the film can change reversibly between amorphous (glassy) and crystalline states. Such phase-change materials are used extensively in read-write optical disk technology
