  • The high-pressure behaviour of H2O is of fundamental importance in both condensed matter and planetary physics1,2. The hydrogen bonding in this system gives rise to a variety of phases at low pressures and temperatures (that is, <2 GPa and <300 K), including the recently discovered high-density amorphous phases3. Structural and equation-of-state4,5 and spectroscopic6–8 studies have been carried out in the 30–50 GPa range on the dense ices (ice VII and VIII), but no data are available on the… CONTINUE READING
