Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, an analysis is made of the process whereby diffusion effects can cause the precipitation of grains of a second phase in a supersaturated solid solution, and the kinetics of this type of grain growth are examined in detail.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a growth equation for individual grains in single-phase materials is suggested, which is used to calculate a rate equation for normal grain growth and the size distribution in the material.

TL;DR: In this article, the average grain size of a log-normal distribution of grain sizes with tetrakaidecahedral shape is related to the average intercept size by a proportionality constant.
Abstract: A model is proposed which realistically characterizes the grain structure of polycrystalline ceramics. The average grain size of a log-normal distribution of grain sizes with tetrakaidecahedral (truncated octahedral) shape is related to the average intercept size by a proportionality constant. This result can be used to determine the average grain size of a sintered powder compact composed of nontextured grains which shows no discontinuous grain growth.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors review the present understanding of film growth processes and their role in microstructural evolution as a function of deposition variables including temperature, the presence of reactive species, and the use of low-energy ion irradiation during growth.
Abstract: Atomic-scale control and manipulation of the microstructure of polycrystalline thin films during kinetically limited low-temperature deposition, crucial for a broad range of industrial applications, has been a leading goal of materials science during the past decades. Here, we review the present understanding of film growth processes—nucleation, coalescence, competitive grain growth, and recrystallization—and their role in microstructural evolution as a function of deposition variables including temperature, the presence of reactive species, and the use of low-energy ion irradiation during growth.
