EML is a containerless
processing furnace for materials research in the European Columbus lab, set to uncover a deeper understanding of advanced alloy and semiconductor materials and their molten state properties for the optimisation of industrial scale casting as well as for basic research.
A major impediment to the process is thermal interaction with a container wall, so electromagnetic and electrostatic levitation techniques have been developed for containerless
undercooling and solidification of molten metals and alloys.
vitrification of mammalian oocytes and embryos.
Successful birth after transfer of vitrified human blastocysts with use of a cryoloop containerless
Richard (Rick) Weber, director of the Glass Products Division of Containerless
Research Inc, the small company that invented and produces the glass in Evanston, IL.
While many vermiculturists keep their worms in special bins, I've devised a containerless
method that works just as well or better.
An apparatus called the Electromagnetic Containerless
Processing Facility (referred to by its German acronym TEMPUS) flew on two shuttle missions in 1994 and the summer of 1997.
This was a joint project between Canada, the United States, and Germany which studied containerless
processing of semiconductor materials using the float zone technique.
, or levitation, melting was one of the technological highlights demonstrated at INCAST Roundup'90.
2) transport processes in materials technology, with chapters on containerless
processing, levitation studies, electrostatic and electromagnetic phenomena, diffusion processes, and inorganic crystal growth;
solidification is an important technique for producing ultrapure materials.
