Abstract

Contact nucleation studies were performed with the dextrose-water system. Under some conditions two crystallographic phases were formed, which were identified in situ using a laser Raman microprobe. In addition, the growth of the contact nuclei was monitored in situ using photomicroscopy. The results are discussed in the context of contact nucleation and growth models.
