Transport of Voids in Nucleation Processes

Part of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics book series (SSAOPP, volume 42)


Thie final chapter considers the kinetics of void transport in the initiation step of phase change, the formation of a new nucleus. The nonuniformity of the medium becomes a central issue. The final section discusses a wave mechanism for propagation of a new phase, a mechanism of phase transition different from conventional nucleation.
