Title

A Study of Scaled Nucleation in a Model Lennard-Jones System

Abstract

Scaling of the vapor-to-liquid nucleation rate is examined in a model Lennard-Jones system using Monte Carlo derived rate constant ratios for growth and decay of small clusters. The model assumes a dilute vapor system of noninteracting clusters and the steady-state nucleation rate formalism expressed as a summation over products of rate constant ratios. The nucleation rates so obtained are examined in a scaling plot, - log[J/1026] vs. Co [Tc/T-1]3/(lnS), the form of which has been recently used to test the consistency of nucleation rate data.
