Related to recrystallization: recrystallization temperature

recrystallization,

n the return of a wrought metal to crystalline form because of excessive cold working or excessive application of heat.

recrystallization

in cryosurgery, the conversion of small crystals, produced during the freezing process, to larger ones which are more damaging to cells. Occurs during a slow rewarming phase.
