Morphological instability of liquid metallic nuclei condensing on charged inhomogeneities.


We analyze the heterogeneous nucleation of liquid metallic phase from vapor on an electrically charged inhomogeneity. It is demonstrated theoretically that, regardless of magnitudes of surface tension of the phase interface and electric charge carried by the inhomogeneity, all spherical nuclei are necessarily unstable at all external pressures for which the… (More)
