Abstract

If the temperature of a glass is continuously increased nucleation can start only after the nascent nuclei are able to escape the advancing critical size. In case the starting temperature T† exceeds the temperature of the maximum nucleation rate, corrections to the steady-state values of the number of nucleated particles become dramatic. Analytical estimations are confirmed with high accuracy by numerical solutions of the time-dependent Becker-Döring equation.
