WHEN dealing with the magnetic susceptibility of tumour tissue1, we reported the magnetic susceptibility of ice at various temperatures from 273??K. down to 77??K. Since this publication, the authors have made many susceptibility measurements of ice, using the same equipment, and have obtained similar results, that is, a relatively large increase in diamagnetism below 150??K. Normal diamagnetism is not dependent on temperature, and hence further experiments were made of the magnetic susceptibility of ice at low temperatures in an attempt to determine some extraneous cause of the increased diamagnetism. ?? 1962 Nature Publishing Group.
