We use an automatic lag time apparatus to show that an electric field of 5*104 Vm−1 appears to have no effect on the nucleation of supercooled water. Previously reported effects at similar magnitude fields are most likely due to the inherent stochastic nature of liquid to solid nucleation.

More about this publication?
  • CryoLetters is a bimonthly international journal for low temperature sciences, including cryobiology, cryopreservation or vitrification of cells and tissues, chemical and physical aspects of freezing and drying, and studies involving ecology of cold environments, and cold adaptation

    The journal publishes original research reports, authoritative reviews, technical developments and commissioned book reviews of studies of the effects produced by low temperatures on a wide variety of scientific and technical processes, or those involving low temperature techniques in the investigation of physical, chemical, biological and ecological problems.
