We study the ground-state (T=0) morphologies in the d=3 random-field Ising model (RFIM) using a computationally efficient graph-cut method. We focus on paramagnetic states which arise for disorder strengths Δ>Δc, where Δc is the critical disorder strength at T=0. These paramagnetic states consist of correlated “domains” of up and down spins which are separated by rough, fractal interfaces. They show novel scattering properties with a cusp singularity in the correlation function at short distances.
