Abstract

Thaumatin, lysozyme, and ferritin single crystals were grown in solutions and gels without and with surrounding strong stationary magnetic fields. The crystal size, number and alignment in dependence on the induction force were analysed. The crystal quality, like mosaicity, as function of the magnetic force is discussed by using synchrotron X-ray diffraction analysis.
