CRYSTAL GROWTH AND GLASS FORMATION.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The effects of nucleating heterogeneities on glass formation have been explored using the spherical cap model of the heterogeneous nucleus. In accord with experimental results on many materials, a total density of heterogeneities of 10**9 cm** minus **3 is assumed. The results indicate that heterogeneities characterized by contact angles smaller than 90-100 degree can have a sizable effect on glass formation, with the critical cooling rates increasing with decreasing contact angle.
