Crystallization from a melt and from a metallic glass both occur in an undercooled liquid. In this way identical nucleation mechanisms can operate in the two cases. However, in metallic glasses, unlike conventional solidification at low undercooling, the low atomic mobility permits the resolution and microscopical study of nucleation processes on added particles.
