Dr Nic Shannon - Quantum Ice

Tuesday 07 June 2011, 13:30

Dr Nic Shannon, (University of Bristol)

Water ice comprises a loosely-packed lattice of water molecules, held together by hydrogen bonds. Here we use zero-temperature quantum Monte Carlo simulations to explore how quantum mechanical tunneling between different spin- or charge-ice configurations can lead to a resolution of this issue, by stabilizing a unique “quantum ice” ground state.
