Surface-phason modes in incommensurate crystals
Walker, M. B.
MetadataShow full item record
The possibility of obtaining surface-phason modes in incommensurate crystals is investigated. Both the dimension of the incommensurateness and the nature of the surface boundary conditions are found to play an important role in determining whether or not surface phasons exist.
