Crystallization Behavior of Ti–Sb–Te Alloy

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter illustrates the change of crystallization behavior of Ti-doped Sb2Te3 from growth-dominated one to nucleation-dominated one with the increase in the doped Ti concentration. The reasons are found by a combination of the real-time radial distribution function and molecular dynamics simulations.
