      Nucleation parameters; doped KDP crystals

    • Abstract


      Induction periods were measured for various supersaturated aqueous solutions of potassium dihydrogen orthophosphate doped separately with potassium bromide and potassium dichromate by the direct vision method. Various critical nucleation parameters were calculated based on the classical theory for homogeneous crystal nucleation and the results are reported and discussed. The critical nucleation parameters increased with increase in doping concentration for both the dopants considered.
