    • Abstract


      We have measured the kinetics of phase transition in LiKSO4 (C66C3v4;Tc∼201 K) by monitoring the time-dependent change in Raman intensity of selected vibrational lines at various temperatures in the transformed phaseC3v4. We find that the observed growth curves for several temperatures display a nearly universal shape when plotted against a suitably scaled time parameter. We interpret our results in terms of a phenomenological model of nucleation and growth.
