2009-05 Franzrahe, Kerstin Ordering phenomena on surfaces or in monolayers can be successfully studied by model systems as binary hard-disk mixtures, the influence of a substrate being modeled by an external potential. For the field-free case the thermodynamic stability of space-filling lattice structures for binary hard-disk mixtures is studied by Monte Carlo computer simulations. As these structures prove to be thermodynamically stable only in high pressure environments, the phase behavior of an equimolar binary mixture with a diameter ratio of σB/σA=0.414 exposed to an external, one-dimensional, periodic potential is analyzed in detail. The underlying ordering mechanisms and the resulting order differ considerably, depending on which components of the mixture interact with the external potential. The simulations show that slight deviations in the concentration of large particles x<sub>A</sub> or the diameter ratio σB/σA have no impact on the occurrence of the various field-induced phenomena as long as the mixture stays in the relevant regime of the packing fraction η. Furthermore the importance of the commensurability of the external potential to the S<sub>1</sub>(AB) square lattice for the occurrence of the induced ordering is discussed.
