Abstract

This work, which concerns the effect of unidirectional sharp concentration gradients on the nucleation of intermetallics in amorphous layers or in supersaturated solid solutions, is focused on the embryo shape. The study leads to a new analysis of the critical concentration gradient beyond which the nucleation driving force is suppressed. Owing to the ¯uctuations in the embryo shape, it is shown that the minimization of the thermodynamic potential leading to the equilibrium aspect ratio of a parallelepiped-shaped embryo is only possible above a certain value of the concentration gradient. Beyond such a concentration gradient, the embryo aspect ratio is found to deviate signi®cantly from that given by the Wulff conditions. Application is presented to the nucleation of the compounds Al3Ni and Ni10Zr7 in a supersaturaed Al±Ni solid solution and in a Ni±Zr amorphous layer respectively.
