Interface structure and crystal growth from the melt — A model theory

Fletcher, Neville H


A simplified atomic model is developed which displays the essential characteristics of a two-phase system, one of the phases being highly disordered (quasi-liquid) and the other nearly completely ordered (crystalline). This model is applied to discuss the equilibrium structure of the interface between the two phases and it is shown that this interface will either be sharp or diffuse depending on the entropy of fusion and on the coherence length for cooperative structural effects in the liquid....[Show more]
