Structural investigations on GaSb crystals grown under microgravity and terrestrial conditions by Bridgman method, are described. Microgravity (μG) conditions resulted in a reasonable quality bi-crystal including its surface layer, as shown by both ion and electron channeling investigations. Microscopy of the surface structure and electrical characterization were also performed.
