The Surface Layer of a Crystal and Its Specific Role in the Process of Melt Formation

  • R. N. Sobolev


A crystal becomes melted in a few stages. The structure of the crystal surface differs from that of its interior. Therefore, as its interior is gradually involved in the melting process, the phase transition temperature becomes higher. The melting point becomes constant when all atoms have the same number of unsaturated bonds.
