Aggregation and Crystal Growth

  • Arne T. Skjeltorp
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 167)

Abstract

Dispersions of monosized microparticles are used to study
  • Diffusion-controlled aggregation

  • Field-induced aggregation

  • Quenching, annealing and interfacial melting

A film has been produced from direct microscopic observations to illustrate the various processes.
