Revealing the Surface Structure of Hexagonal Ice through Polymer Etching

Brumberg, Alexandra

The orientation of the crystalline lattice of hexagonal ice can be determined through a surface etching technique. Coating the ice surface with a polymer induces the formation of etch pits whose geometry can be used to calculate the precise orientation of the crystalline lattice within the macroscopic sample. Knowing this orientation provides the necessary information to determine how to expose an... read more
