Abstract

The aim of this work is the direct study of the solid-liquid interface development in bulk 3D samples under directional solidification in different crystallographic orientations in ground and microgravity conditions. Flight experimental installation “MORPHOS” intended for directional solidification of transparent substances is under development. Ground-based experiments in 3D and quasi 2D samples are in progress.
