Science Magazine Selects SSRL Research as a Breakthrough

By Cathy Knotts

In late December, Science Magazine listed its top 10 breakthroughs in 2004. In eighth place was SSRL’s research on the structure of water. A team of researchers, led by scientists at SSRL and Stockholm University, found that water molecules clump much more loosely than previously thought. This work revealed detailed information about the nearest neighbor coordination geometry in liquid water and has implications for multiple fields from chemistry to atmospheric sciences.
