Kinetics of ordering in graphite SbCl5 studied by ESR
Spin resonance experiments allowed us to study the kinetics of ordering in the quasi-2D order-disorder phase transition observed at Tc = (210 ± 2)K for SbCl5-GIC stage 4. Quenching from the disorder phase (T ≫ Tc) reveals a time broadening of the resonance linewidth with scaling behavior (∿ tn), which we attribute to the time growing of the average linear domains size of a weakly incommensurate superlattice.
