The kinetics of first order phase transitions1 has been attracting great interest from physicists studying nonequilibrium phenomena, nucleation and growth, and pattern formation when a rapid change of external variables takes place across the phase boundary. Although there have been many theoretical studies on the kinetics, only a few experiments have been reported on the either order-disorder transitions or the phase separations.2
