Last update: March 14, 2016

Our paper has been published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry B.   Nakamura, T., Matsumoto, M., Yagasaki, T. & Tanaka, H. Thermodynamic Stability of Ice II and Its Hydrogen-Disordered Counterpart: Role of Zero-Point Energy. J. Phys. Chem. B, 2016, 120 (8), pp 1843–1848 DOI:10.1021/acs.jpcb.5b09544   There are more than 10 crystal polymorphs for ice.  They are roughly divided into hydrogen-ordered and -disoirdered phases.  In the hydrogen-ordered phase, direc ...

A paper is published in Phys. Rev. B.     T. Yagasaki, M. Matsumoto, and H. Tanaka,  Phys. Rev. B 93, 054118 (2016).   Water is known to be an "anomalous liquid", i.e., the solid state floats on the liquid state.  It is also well known that water expands when it is cooled below 4°C.  While, water has another interesting anomalous property, in which crystal ice also expands when it is deeply cooled below 55 K.   In this research, we elucidated the mech ...
