Abstract

The dynamics of phase separation of a two-component Lennard-Jones model in three dimensions is investigated by means of large scale molecular dynamics simulation. A systematic study over a wide range of quench temperatures within the coexistence region shows that the binary system reaches a dynamical scaling regime at late times during which the average domain size grows linearly with time in agreement with Siggia's theoretical prediction and dimensional analyses of model H.
