Abstract

Models for surface nucleation controlled crystal growth are analyzed. It is shown that in general the large-crystal model rather then the small-crystal model should be used to describe growth kinetics. Consideration of the effects on calculated crystal growth rates of time dependent nucleation processes shows that these effects should not be significant in the growth of most typical materials from the melt.
