  • Figure illustrates a glass containing two water liquids that have different densities surrounded in a cold environment. Two liquids of water exist 2020-12-01 Using x-ray lasers, researchers at Stockholm University have been able to follow the transformation between two distinct different liquid states of water at around -63 Centigrade, both being made of H2O molecules. Even though the two liquids can only be studied under extreme conditions, their existence strongly influences many of waters unique properties in our daily life. Their findings are published in the journal Science.

16 profile research areas at Stockholm University

Stockholm University is a prominent research university characterised by its independent basic research. The university has identified 16 profile areas within the broad research spectrum. The research within three out of these profile areas is performed at the Department of Physics.
