The domain morphology of weakly disordered ferromagnets, quenched from the high-temperature phase to the low-temperature phase, is studied using numerical simulations. We find that the geometrical properties of the coarsening domain structure, e.g. the distributions of hull-enclosed areas and domain perimeter lengths, are described by a scaling phenomenology in which the growing domain scale is the only relevant parameter. Furthermore, the scaling functions have forms identical to those of the corresponding pure system, extending the “super-universality” property previously noted for the pair correlation function.
