Figure 16 shows typical examples42 of critical wetting at phase coexistence (H = 0) varying the surface magnetic field HI.

We will discuss some of the results primarily obtained from our own works: (1) microstructural evolution in coherent two-phase alloys with ordered intermetallic precipitates;9 (2) twin formation during a cubic ~ tetragonal transformations; 10 (3) grain growth in a single-phase system. 1 I Therefore, this is not intended to be a review for the entire subject of applications of the diffuse-interface field model. The main goal is to present the basic idea of how one can model a microstructure using the diffuse-interface field model, and hence the discussions of the examples will be as brief as possible.
