Direct evaluation of attachment and detachment rate factors of atoms in crystallizing supercooled liquids.

A numerical approach is proposed, according to which a statistical treatment of the results of molecular dynamics simulations was performed without using any model functions and/or fitting parameters, which allows one to accurately estimate the critical nucleus size nc.

Amorphous Ni50Ti50 Alloy with Nanoporous Structure Generated by Ultrafast Isobaric Cooling

Amorphous metallic foams are prospective materials due to unique combination of their mechanical and energy-absorption properties. In the present work, atomistic dynamics simulations are performed

Extended short-range order determines the overall structure of liquid gallium.

Time-resolved cluster analysis allows one to reveal that the short-range structural order in liquid gallium is determined by a range of the correlation lengths, and there are no stable crystalline domains and molecule-like Ga2 dimers typical for crystal phases of gallium.

Kinetics of crystalline nuclei growth in glassy systems.

It is found that for the considered systems at different temperatures, the crystal growth laws that were rescaled onto the waiting times of the critically-sized nuclei follow a unified dependence, and can significantly simplify the theoretical description of the post-nucleation growth of crystalline nuclei.
