The Remarkable Incubation Time on the Order-Disorder Phase Transition of Mg3In
In a first order phase transition, the system transforms from a meta-stabl estate to a stable state, where the probability distribution function of the system in the phase space must ride over the barrier of the local free energy potential between the stable state and the metastable state associated with thermodynamical fluctuations. This stochastic process is of-ten expressed by anucleation-growth picture in a real space.
