Embedded nanocrystals melt at higher temperature

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, US, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, US, and Australian National University have found that germanium nanocrystals embedded in silica glass do not melt until temperatures almost 200 C above the melting point of bulk germanium and only resolidify more than 200 C below bulk germanium's melting point.
