In Situ Atomic‐Scale Study of Particle‐Mediated Nucleation

1 Introduction Crystallization represents an important process in chemistry materials science and condensed‐matter physics 1-4 Based on classical homogeneous nucleation and growth mechanism a crystal nucleus is first generated by spontaneous random aggregation of species from liquid or solution followed by atomic or molecular attachment to form a stable crystal structure a usual

In this context understanding the nucleation-growth mechanisms of precipitates at the atomic level is pivotal in providing routes for the development of better alloys and in suggesting solutions to remediate the degradation problems of mechanical properties Recent developments in materials characterization techniques have made it possible to

We use a combination of hydrogenography and Johnson–Mehl–Avrami–Kolmogorov (JMAK) analyses to identify (1) the driving force dependence of the nucleation and growth mechanism of MgH 2 in thin film multilayers of Mg (10 nm) and (2) the nucleation and growth mechanism of Mg in the earlier formed MgH 2 i e the hydrogen desorption process We conclude that JMAK may be successfully applied

For perceptible growth rates this mechanism requires a finite driving force (or degree of supercooling) in order to lower the nucleation barrier sufficiently for nucleation to occur by means of thermal fluctuations In the theory of crystal growth from the melt Burton and Cabrera have distinguished between two major mechanisms:

The nanoscale Si films with the thickness of 2 nm 5 nm 10 nm and 20 nm were deposited by plasma ion assisted deposition (PIAD) on glass substrate in order to investigate the initial stage and the nucleation and growth mechanism of the Si film The atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to investigate the surface topography of the as-deposited Si film

Then we provide a summary of recent research progress in the observation and understanding of nucleation and growth of semiconductor nanocrystals in one-phase and two-phase systems and compare the nucleation and growth mechanisms of the two kinds of reaction systems

In contrast the nucleation and growth of C–S–H on limestone particles were predominantly determined by donor–acceptor mechanisms following moderate acid–base interactions Consequently a strong chemical bonding of calcium ions to a limestone surface resulted in a large amount of uniformly distributed C–S–H nuclei

To unravel the fundamental mechanisms of nucleation and growth for UFPs we performed three types of measurements (Methods) including the application of a quasiatmospheric aerosol evolution study (QUALITY) chamber (25 26) In situ measurements of gases and aerosols were performed at a traffic-dominant urban site (2 25 26)

Understanding the mechanism of Li nucleation and growth is essential for providing long cycle life and safe lithium ion batteries or lithium metal batteries However no quantitative report on Li metal deposition is available to the best of our knowledge We propose a model for quantitatively understanding the Li nucleation and growth mechanism associated with the solid–electrolyte
