From the rate of the increasein the number of crystal nuclei, we estimated the crystal nucleation fre-quency I. The numbers in the figure indicate the volume fraction . (B) Thevolume fraction dependence of the reduced crystal nucleation frequency Irfor our work, the numerical estimate by Auer and Frenkel (15), and theexperimental work by Sinn et al. (17). Curves are guides to the eye. We alsoshow the results for three different system sizes (N = 1,024, 4,096, and16,834), which indicate few finite size effects for N 4,096. Here we use thevolume fraction estimated with eff = 1.0953. Here BD stands for Brown-ian Dynamics simulations of the WCA system and HS stands for event-drivenMolecular Dynamics simulations of the hard sphere system.

Formation of a crystal nucleus from liquidTakeshi Kawasaki and Hajime Tanaka1

Crystallization is one of the most fundamental nonequilibriumphenomena universal to a variety of materials. It has so far beenassumed that a supercooled liquid is in a homogeneous disor-dered state before crystallization. Contrary to this common belief,we reveal that a supercooled colloidal liquid is actually not homo-geneous, but has transient medium-range structural order. We findthat nucleation preferentially takes place in regions of high struc-tural order via wetting effects, which reduce the crystalliquid in-terfacial energy significantly and thus promotes crystal nucleation.This novel scenario provides a clue to solving a long-standing mys-tery concerning a large discrepancy between the rigorous numer-ical estimation of the nucleation rate on the basis of the classicalnucleation theory and the experimentally observed ones. Our find-ingmay shed light not only on themechanism of crystal nucleation,but also on the fundamental nature of a supercooled liquid state.

Crystallization is a process in which an ordered phase emergesfrom a disordered state. It is important not only as a funda-mental problem of nonequilibrium statistical physics, but also asthat of materials science. The initial state is a disordered liquidand the final state is a stable crystal. The classical nucleation the-ory (13) considers these initial homogeneous disordered liquidand final ordered crystal phases as the only key players of nuclea-tion. In this theory, thus, crystal nucleation is controlled by thecompetition between the free-energy gain due to the liquidcrys-tal transformation and the free-energy loss associated with theformation of the liquidcrystal interface. The total free-energycost to form a spherical crystallite with radius R is

where ns is the number density of particles in the solid, is thedifference between the liquid and solid chemical potentials, and is the liquidsolid interfacial tension. This G goes through amaximum at Rc 2ns (critical nucleus size) and the heightof the free-energy barrier is given by
