Surface Segregation and Order of FeCo Alloy

The surface segregation and surface order near the order-disorder phase transition of FeCo alloy was studied through Monte Carlo simulation of an Ising type model Hamiltonian. The results showed that the proper choice of Hamiltonian parameters could reproduce the recent observation of surface order above the transition temperature and that the field term played dominant role.
