Solidification of Containerless Undercooled Melts

This international Topical Team promotes and establishes the field of solidification of containerless undercooled melts. It comprises specialists in the field of solidification both from an experimental and a theoretical side that are qualified by outstanding scientific work on solidification with the focus on application of containerless processing of melts of metals and semiconductors both under Terrestrial and Space conditions. Although scientifically well established, the significance of non-equilibrium solidification from undercooled melts and the related physical mechanisms such as crystal nucleation, growth modes and their dynamics is scarcely noticed in industrial research. Accordingly, the team elaborates experiments related to the topic, with respect to industrial needs.
