As a result of this interaction, firstly, the growth of the precipitates is not so rapid as a result of the slower increase of the degree of supersaturation of the intrinsic point defects in the volume of the growing crystal and, secondly, the critical radius of formation of the carbon precipitates increases at a lower rate, and this results in more rapid growth of the carbon precipitates.
