Author affiliations


The crystallization of supercooled amorphous materials limits their successful applications. The spatial origin of crystallization, nucleation, is one of the most debated topics. We show that homogeneous crystallization may be initiated from tens of micrometers beneath the surface of a supercooled acetaminophen liquid.
