Research Interests

Organic glasses show an interesting crystallization behavior that they can still crystallize even when their molecular mobility is remarkably low. What’s even surprising phenomenon is the rate of diffusion-less crystallization is even higher than that of diffusion-controlled crystallization at higher temperatures. In this project, we implement the technique of molecular dynamics (MD) simulation to investigate the dynamics of ortho-terphenyl (OTP) crystallization. The main focus is to elucidate the underlying mechanism of diffusion-controlled and diffusion-less crystallization in molecule level.
