Crystallization Behavior

The crystallization studies of alloys are important from both scientic and technological points of view. The study of the crystallization behavior of metallic glasses is very interesting from ascientic point of view. Since crystallization of metallic glasses occurs by anucleation and growth process,it offers an opportunity to study the growth of crystals into an isotropic medium. Further, this process also offers achance to test the classical nucleation and growth theories at large undercoolings.
