Abstract

The thermal behavior of gallium microparticles, in comparison with bulk gallium, was examined by differential scanning calorimetry. All the samples showed a single endothermic signal for melting near the known melting point of gallium. Cooling the molten samples showed super-cooling effect, which was more pronounced for the gallium microparticles than for the bulk metal.
