Paper Abstract

ALICE is an instrument developed for optical analysis of fluids near their critical point in Manned Space Station. A first model is used since July 1992 in the MIR Station. Two optical subsystems contain light source, imagery and measurement tools. Between them, in a thermostat, two sample cell units are experimented. The six available diagnostics, in coherent and incoherent light, are presented with the most significant results.
