[en] We discuss crystal formation in supersaturated suspensions of monodisperse hard spheres with
a concentration of hard spheres randomly pinned in space and time. The pinning procedure introduces
an external length scale and an external time scale that restrict the accessible number
of con gurations and ultimately the number of pathways leading to crystallization. We observe a
signi cant drop in the nucleation rate density at a characteristic pinning concentration that can
be directly related to the structure of the critical nucleus and the dynamics of its formation in the
unpinned system.
