Melting Kinetics of Confined Systems at the Nanoscale: Superheating and Supercooling
In situ electron diffraction measurements of silica-embedded Ge nanocrystals reveal a melting/solidification hysteresis of 470 K which is approximately symmetric about the bulk melting point. This surprising behavior, which is thought to be impossible in
