Interfaces are ubiquitous in materials microstructure. In this study, we apply coarse-grained versions of the continuum atomistic phase-field crystal formalism to the study of anisotropic interfaces. The phase-field crystal methodology has proven to be a powerful technique when studying diffusive transformations while accounting for atomic scale resolution. Their coarse-grained counterparts resemble traditional phase-field models, and allow for simulation of length scales beyond the microscopic. We explore the properties of solid-liquid interfaces as a function of temperature and the surface orientation with respect to the underlying crystal lattice in pure materials and alloys.
