dc.description.abstractA facility for crystallization experiments in space named Granada Crystallization Facility-2 (GCF-2) is presented. GCF-2 is an inexpensive and compact modular platform featuring a high experiment density (number of experiments per liter of useful volume), a temperature control system, and a complete independence from human intervention after integration, which makes GCF-2 equally suited for manned and unmanned flights. The facility can be used for commercial quality crystal production and for fundamental crystal growth studies using ex situ diagnostics. The changes incorporated to the previous version and the complementary hardware (electronics and reactors) used are described. Also included is information on the performance of the facility during the European Space Agency FOTON-M3 mission on board the Russian unmanned FOTON capsule.en_US
