USED SCIENCE HARDWARE:

Hardware for growing 3D photon crystals 3DPCGF, including:

  • Main Unit 3DPCU containing:
    • 8 experimental sealed growth cells with the investigated materials;
    • digital camera with a lens;
    • parameters recoding unit;
    • white LEDs (to illuminate one of the growing cells during shooting;
    • UV LEDs (for photohardening of the contents of all growth cells after completion of the experiment on the ISS).
  • Switch box and power supply BIP-12
    To supply power to main unit 3DPCU;
  • Cable set.
 

PURPOSE:

Produce 3D photon crystals through self-organization and ordering of colloid nanoparticles in an electrolyte solution with subsequent fixation in the elastic gel matrix.

OBJECTIVE:

Grow colloid crystals in micrgravity, fix the crystal structure by photohardening, return produced materials to Earth.

EXPECTED RESULTS:

Application of photon crystals in photonics items will make it possible to considerably increase noise immunity and information processing rate.

EXPERIMENT RESULTS:

Materials produced in 8 growth cells of main unit 3 DPCU, as well as digital photo information on the process of formation of a colloid crystal in one of the growth cells.
