Electromagnetic Containerless Processing Facility (TEMPUS)

Nearly 30 experiments in materials processing were conducted with nine different types of science facilities. DARA provided the TEMPUS, flying for first time on IML-2, designed to allow study of solidification of materials from liquid state in a containerless environment. Solidification phenomena are of great interest to science and also used in many industrial processes. Science teams detected for first time a phase in a nickel-niobium sample that is masked by other forces on Earth.

Tiegelfreies Elektromagnetisches Prozessieren Unter Schwerelosigkeit (TEMPUS)Electromagnetic Containerless Processing Facility

TEMPUS, an electromagnetic levitation facility that allows containerless processing of metallic samples in microgravity, first flew
on the IML-2 Spacelab mission. The principle of electromagnetic levitation is used commonly in ground-based experiments to
melt and then cool metallic melts below their freezing points without solidification occurring (undercooling).
