The aim of the work is getting reference data on thermophoretic motion eliminating gravity-induced perturbation, developing new instrumentation and procedures. A series of experiments on measuring phoretic velocities was performed in the Bremen drop tower providing 4.7 s of high quality microgravity conditions, which allowed making negligible particle sedimentation and buoyancy driven convection. Motion of aerosol particles was observed simultaneously at low resolution to control nongravity… CONTINUE READING
