Dynamics of crystallization of amorphous antimony-selenium film deposited on carbon substrate have been studied by the high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. The amorphous film was suddenly crystallized at 200°C by heating in vacuum. By the electron beam irradiation crystallization occurred at the focused electron beam region in the amorphous film. The growth process of crystallization by electron beam irradiation was recorded on a video image at the atomic resolution mode. The growth front of crystallization showed nano-concave and -convex shapes. The recrystallization with the different orientation at the first grown crystal have been found, and discussed as the influence of remaining antimony crystallites at the first crystallized film region.
