    • Abstract


      We study the structure, phase behaviour and growth laws in Ising ferromagnets and binary mixtures with bond disorder introduced at regularly selected sites for a critical quench. The results presented here are from extensive Monte Carlo simulations on two-dimensional Ising systems. Domain growth in a ferromagnet is modelled by using nonconserved spinflip (Glauber) kinetics, and phase separation in a binary (AB) mixture is modelled by conserved spin-exchange (Kawasaki) kinetics. In both cases, we observed that the domain growth law is consistent with the respective power-law growth with thevariable growth exponent that depends on the number of disordered sites. The nonconserved Ising system follows dynamical scaling for all the number of disordered sites studied here; however, a small deviation is noticed for $r\to 0$ at a large number of disordered sites. Whereas, for the conserved case, dynamical scaling deviates from the master curve after a reasonable number of disordered lattice sites; we notice the formation of lamellar evolution morphology at a higher number of disordered sites at later times.
