We report on our new optical setup which employs multiple-beam interferometry for measurements on He-3 crystals. Our interferometer enables us to observe the global shape of the crystal as well as the fine details of the solid/liquid interface on a scale of less than 5 mu m. Phase measurement allows accurate studies of growth and melting kinetics. We present the first images of He-3 crystals obtained with this setup.
