Session 2: Nucleation, Crystallization, and Phase Separations
This session will focus on nucleation, crystallization and phase separation, processes that play a key role in glass formation and crystallization. Experimental, modeling and theoretical investigations will be considered. Topics will include steady-state and time-dependent nucleation, the Classical Theory as well as more advanced models for nucleation, the role of the glass structure and fragility in these processes, kinetic Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics studies, finite size effects and the influence of surfaces, and immiscibility regions in the liquid and glass. Studies including all glass systems, oxide, metallic, organic and chalcogenide, are appropriate.
