Crystal formation at 3,000 °C
Experience the birth of artificial gems when we show you the only high temperature crystal growth lab in the world! As a souvenir, each participant will receive a crystal shard from a melt that was heated to more than 3,000° C – a temperature at which iron is already in a gaseous state.
Following the presentation (approx. 30 min) and the distribution of the crystals (approx. 20 min), a tour of the high temperature lab will be possible. To do so, we will cross the street together to the Old Chemistry Building (Altes Chemie-Gebäude) of the TU Berlin. This tour is not wheelchair accessible.
