Abstract

Large superheating effects in Sn and Pb clusters encapsulated in graphitic carbon onions were experimentally observed. Supercooling was also observed, but was significant only in encapsulated Sn clusters. It was established that in the case of encapsulated Pb clusters, the pressures required to account for the observed superheating are in the range of 2 to 3 GPa.
