Session 2: Nucleation, Crystallization, and Phase Separation
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.
