Particle coarsening is one of the diffusional material processes wherein larger particles grow at the expense of smaller particles, leading to a reduction in the total surface area, and thus a reduction in the total free energy of the system. In the other hand, phase-field crystal (PFC) is a recently-developed computational model, which has a great potential in simulating solidification and subsequent microstructural evolution with atomistic details. A wide range of phenomena has been studied via PFC including solidification, grain nucleation and growth, segregation, etc. that shows the potential that this model has to study particle coarsening. The goal of this research is to develop a binary one-mode PFC model for coarsening in Pb-Sn solid-liquid mixtures. In addition, the developed PFC model will be quantified based on the coarsening in solid-liquid mixtures at microgravity experiments and MEAM-MD simulations. In this presentation, we will present our progress toward this goal.
