PNNL Science & Technology Webinar – August 18, 2020


Online Zoom Event
From 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Free to participate – must register for this Zoom session

You are invited to join us for PNNL’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series – “Exploring ‘No-Man’s Land’: An Examination of Water Between -44°F and -190°F,” a presentation by Loni Kringle.

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, Loni will discuss a technique developed at PNNL to explore this previously inaccessible temperature regime and some of the things she’s learned about water at these extreme temperatures.
