Paper Abstract

An in situ observation setup for the growth process based on near-IR microscopic interferometry was modified for a short- duration low-gravity experiment. Subsequently the observation in the environments were performed to reveal the influence of strongly-damped fluid flow on the growth process using the parabolic flights of an airplane and the free-fall of a drop capsule. As result, the dissolution and growth rates were successfully obtained using the setup with a high accuracy. It was also found that the rates were strongly decelerated during the low gravity conditions.
