ISS Science for Everyone

Science Objectives for Everyone Columnar-to-Equiaxed Transition in Solidification Processing-2 (CETSOL-2) investigation aims to deepen the understanding of the physical principles that govern solidification processes in metal alloys. The patterns of the crystals resulting from transitions of liquids to solids is of substantial importance to processes in producing materials such as solar cells, thermoelectrics, and metal alloys.
