Ostwald ripening in rarefied systems

Abstract:

Mass exchange between spherical molecular clusters is analyzed in the case when the mean free path of molecules in the intercluster space is much larger than the cluster sizes but much smaller than average intercluster separation. It is shown that there is a steady-state regime when big clusters grow at the expense of the smaller ones (Ostwald ripening), which is characterized by a one-parametric family of self-similar cluster size distribution functions and by an exponentially growing averag...
