It takes some heat to form ice

Findings turn previous understanding of ice formation upside down

31-May-2021

Researchers from TU Graz in Austria and the Universities of Cambridge and Surrey succeeded to track down the first step in ice formation at a surface, revealing that additional energy is needed for water before ice can start to form. Water freezes and turns to ice when brought in contact with a ...
