    We present a method to make Pt nanometer-spaced electrodes that are free of metallic particles and stable at ambient conditions. The nanogaps are fabricated using feedback-controlled electromigration to form few-atom contacts. When performing this procedure at elevated temperatures (>420 K), the...

    The fluctuation theory of homogeneous nucleation was applied for calculating the physical boundary of metastable states, the kinetic spinodal, in supercooled D[sub 2]O and D[sub 2]O+H[sub 2]O mixtures. The kinetic spinodal in our approach is completely determined by the surface tension and...

    From the viewpoint of unstable growth of nonequilibrium fluctuations, nucleation processes were examined. Electrostatic equilibrium produced by the electric double layer is always locally broken by the thermal motion of solution particles. This breakdown, i.e., fluctuation occurs not at the...

    Phase separation and nucleation processes are investigated for a bistable chemical system. The study utilizes a reactive lattice-gas cellular automaton model to provide a mesoscopic description of the dynamics. Simulations of steady-state structure, wave propagation, and critical nucleus size...

    The role of temperature in classical nucleation theory is examined. It is shown that while even small clusters are assigned a temperature in the classical theory, this must be a fluctuating quantity. Stochastic simulations of cluster evaporation and growth are presented to track the temperature...

    In the foregoing paper, part I, the mechanism of the fluctuations which are necessarily induced by the breakdown of the electrostatic equilibrium was examined. Consequently, it was found that nonspecific adsorption of ions onto electrode surface is essential to the progress of nucleation. It was...
