Water to Ice in a Nanosecond

Researchers in Albuquerque, New Mexico have discovered a process in which to transform water to ice in a nanosecond. Sandia National Laboratories, using a process of twenty million amperes of electrical pulses through water held in a small aluminum chamber under extreme compression, has created a phase of ice known as "ice VII".

The machine, known as Sandia Z, is expected to help scientists understand the effects of extreme conditions on a wide variety of applications and materials. The preliminary conceptions of applications currently range from manufacturing to defense. More detail on the results of the Sandia Z research and experimentation can be found at Sandia.gov.
