Centrifuge for hyper-gravity experiments
To complement our experiment on altered gravity conditions we built our own centrifuge for hyper-gravity experiments.
The centrifuge allows the acquisition of measurement points in the range from 1 to 5 g.
This instrument can provide a hypergravity environment for cells, petri-dishes and small plants.
The diameter of the LDC is one metre. It has twelve arms, each of which support a gondola. The rotation of the centrifuge creates the hypergravity field at the experiment site inside each gondola.
A computer, webcams and all the measuring equipment can be mounted on the centrifuge, allowing many experiment scenarios.
