Analysis of crystallization in Sb2Se98 composition
Sb2Se98 glass with the particle size of 20–50 μm was studied under non-isothermal conditions using differential scanning calorimeter. Upon heating, this glass shows a single glass transition and three overlapping crystallization peaks. The kinetic analysis of overlapping peaks was done: two peaks were described by autocatalytical model and the last peak showing almost full symmetry was described by Gaussian function.
