    • Abstract


      Monte-Carlo simulations are described using the Kawasaki model of oxygen (dis)ordering in the basal plane of YBa2Cu3O7−δ(YBCO). In this model the presence or absence of an interstitial oxygen defect is mapped into a pseudo Ising spins=+1 or − 1. We study the rate law and the relaxation time of the order parameter and most importantly, the diffusion of oxygen in the basal plane across the structural phase transition in this system. In a separate investigation we have carried out numerical analysis of a mean-field dynamical model (with Kawasaki kinetics) to examine phase ordering dynamics and pattern formation, for δ=0.
