When the buoyancy and the viscous drag are the same, the melt is stable. 1 Theory of Crystal Growth 31 called the critical Raleigh coefficient. When NRa increases and exceeds the critical value, natural convection increases. The melt’s convection becomes unstable, which induces temperature oscillations in the melt, disturbing the stability of the crystal growth interface, and creating growth striations. These striations hurt the optical quality of the crystal. In zero gravity, there is no natural convection, but this case is difficult to realize on earth.
Convection driven entirely by gravity is natural convection. Natural convection includes heat convection and solute convection. The driving forces for heat convection are the temperature gradients of the system. The driving forces for solute convection are solute concentration gradients. The factors influencing heat convection are mostly: the geometrical shape of the container and its boundary properties, the corresponding tropism of heat and melt flow in the gravity field, etc. The magnitude of the temperature gradient in the melt |∇T|, the melt’s coefficient of thermal expansion α, the melt’s viscosity γ, the melt’s thermal conductivity κ, a characteristic geometrical parameter of the container l, and the acceleration of gravity g, can be combined to form a dimensionless quantity NRa called the Raleigh constant, which plays an important role in the in separating different melt state and convection regimes.
Or if the system does work on the external agent, its free energy will decrease. When the system is in its equilibrium state no work is exchanged with the outside agent, the volume of system is constant, and the Helmholtz free energy reaches a minimum. In an isovolumetric process, dV = 0, the work done by pressure P is zero. 10) states that absorbing heat from an outside bath causes an increase of the enthalpy of system. Then if the enthalpy of system decreases, it must supply heat to an outside bath.
