Abstract:

Applications of phase transitions are classified into four groups those utilizing the formation andor motion of mobile boundaries between two or more phases that coexist below a critical temperature T sub c, those utilizing metastable phases obtained by control of the kinetics of nucleation andor diffusion required for transformation to the stable phase or phases, those utilizing changes in physical properties as T approaches T sub c, and those utilizing changes in physical properties at T sub c.
