Using electromagnetic levitation under micro-gravity conditions, the interfacial properties of an Cu 75 Co 25 alloy have been investigated in the liquid phase. This alloy exhibits a metastable liquid miscibility gap and can be prepared and levitated in a configuration consisting of a liquid cobalt-rich core surrounded by a liquid copper-rich shell. Exciting drop oscillations and analysing the frequency spectrum, both surface and (liquid–liquid) interfa-cial tension can be derived from the observed oscillation frequencies. This paper briefly reviews the theoretical background and reports on a recent experiment carried out on board the TEXUS 44 sounding rocket.
