Abstract
The problem of the separation of crystals from their feeding solutions and their conservation at the end of the crystallization under microgravity is investigated. The goal to be reached is to propose an efficient and simple system. This method has to be applicable for an automatic separation on board a spacecraft, without using a centrifuge. The injection of an immiscible and inert liquid into the cell is proposed to solve the problem. The results of numerical modeling, earth simulation tests and experiments under short durations of weightlessness (using aircraft parabolic flights) are described.
