CRYSTAL GROWTH AND GLASS FORMATION.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

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.
