Abstract

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.
