Crystal Growth Kinetics in Binary Borate Melts
The rate of crystal growth from undercooled melts depends upon a number of factors: (1) the magnitude of the free energy difference between the melt and crystal, (2) the concentration of sites suitable for molecular attachment at the crystal surface, (3) the rate at which growth units can be transported across the melt-crystal interface, (4) possible orientation requirements at the melt-crystal interface, and (5) the availability of crystallizable species at the interface.
