We investigate the kinetics of crystal growth by measurements of the dendrite growth velocity as a function of undercooling during nonequilibrium solidification. Measurements are conducted under different conditions of convection. The liquid samples are levitated and undercooled in strong alternating electromagnetic fields leading to forced convection. Inductive stirring is avoided by processing the samples in a glassy slag where only natural convection is present. Forced convection and natural convection can be reduced by performing undercooling experiments in reduced gravity. The experimental results obtained under different conditions are compared to each other in order to investigate the influence of convection on the growth dynamics of dendrites in undercooled melts. The congruently melting compound Ni2B is chosenchosen as a suitable sample system. It forms an intermetallic phase with growth velocities that are comparable to the fluid flow velocities in electromagnetically levitated melts. The results are analyzed within dendrite growth models and reveal that the growth velocity is essentially influenced by forced convection in strong electromagnetic fields. The present work is supported by DFG under contract HE1601/25.
