Neutron diffraction will be is used to investigate a proposed new form of ice at very high pressure and temperature, and what form of water it melts to under these extreme conditions. Experiments will be done on the UK neutron source in Oxfordshire, and possibly also on the European neutron facility in Grenoble, France. Results will be relevant both to understanding ice and water in a fundamental way and also to the physics of ice in planets and satellites.
