Abstract

Magnetic levitation makes a condition equivalent to non- or microgravity for diamagnetic materials and gives us an opportunity to do similar experiments as those planned for space projects. We have succeeded in the in situ observation of freezing of levitated water, crystal growth of some ionic crystals in a levitated solution and melt of levitated glass without a crucible.
