Transport, Nucleation and Growth
Generation of reactants
Transport of reactants to the growth surface (in some cases via a “boundary layer” adjacent to the surface).
Adsorption at the growth surface
Nucleation (irreversible location on a crystal lattice site)
Growth (advance of the liquid-solid or vapour-solid interface)
Removal of unwanted reaction products from the growth surface
