Abstract

The transition between the supercooled liquid (SCL) and crystal phases was investigated by in situ observation of boson peak in a glassy fresnoite (Ba2 TiSi2 O8) with an extremely high nucleation ability. The glassy fresnoite revealed anomalous boson behavior, in that the boson peak's full width at half maximum diverged at T/ Tg ∼1.2. This behavior suggests that an elastically softer region exists at the interface of the fresnoite nucleus/crystallite in the SCL state.
