Water is everywhere. Water also has many strange properties that are often overlooked because it is everywhere, like the fact that ice floats in water and that water expands when it freezes to crystalline ice. As water is supercooled, the anomalies become exaggerated, so to understand the fundamental physics it must be examined it at extremely low temperatures. However, there is a temperature region that was previously inaccessible to experiments of liquid water, this region is known as water’s “No-Man’s Land.” In this seminar, I’ll discuss a technique developed at PNNL to explore this previously inaccessible temperature regime and some of the things we’ve learned about water at these extreme temperatures.
