Conference paper


Application of one-dimensional kinetic Ising model to study the kinetics of 2H to 3C, 3C to 2H, 2H to 4H and 2H to 6H restacking transitions by martensitic process is reviewed. It is shown that the characteristic length scale grows as t1/2 in the dynamic scaling regime for all these transitions in agreement with the theoretical predictions.
