Flux Driven Nucleation at Interfaces during Reactive Diffusion – New Solution of an Old Problem
The problem of phase competition during reactive diffusion is revisited. Nucleation of an intermediate phase at an interface under external fluxes in the neighboring phases is considered in the frame of kinetic Fokker-Planck approach. Effective nucleation barrier depending on the divergence of external fluxes is introduced. New suppression/growth criteria are obtained.
