We establish some new results about the Γ-limit, with respect to the L1-topology, of two different (but related) phase-field approximations of the so-called Euler’s Elastica Bending Energy for curves in the plane. In particular we characterize the Γ-limit as ε → 0 of ℰε, and show that in general the Γ-limits of ℰε and do not coincide on indicator functions of sets with non-smooth boundary. More precisely we show that the domain of the Γ-limit of strictly contains the domain of the Γ-limit of ℰε.
