Differential thermal analysis has been carried out on AgGaS2 samples in order to investigate the relationship between the superheating of the melt and the supercooling behaviour of the material leading to an improvement of crystal growth conditions. The knowledge gained will be correlated to the crystal growth experiments which had been carried out by using the gradient freezing method.

The influence of heat treatment of a liquid phase on “melting-crystallization” processes of silver thiogallate (AgGaS2) having chalcopyrite structure I

, has been studied by the method of statistical thermal analysis (STA). It is shown that the melting temperature of solid phase (T m) increases non-monotonic from 970 °C due to rise in the preliminary melt overheating, and T m reaches asymptotically 1010 °C. The equilibrium melting-crystallization temperature (

) has been defined as 989.2 °C. It is also found an extreme dependence of the melt supercooling on its overheating. The two curves of irregular dependence of nucleation rate on melt supercooling have been plotted at different melt overheating.
