Scientists have developed the world's fastest water heater capable of heating water to 1
It can be argued that the world's fastest water heater, capable of heating water to 100,000 degrees Celsius, is not simply used for making coffee  The experiment, conducted by Swedish researchers, is intended to expose the remaining mysteries around the most important liquid on earth.
What is the fastest water heater in the world?
Scientists used a powerful X-ray laser as the world's fastest water heater to heat water from room temperature to 100,000 degrees Celsius in less than a tenth of a second
For those wondering what a picosecond looks like, it's one millionth Secondly, that's even faster than a blink of an eye.
The laser, which was transformed into the world's fastest water heater, was Linac's coherent light source, which is held by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Calif Orange. The LCLS shot "extremely intense and ultra-short flashes" of X-rays at water.
"It's not the usual way to boil water," said Carl Caleman of the DESY Research Center on the record of the research team at Uppsala University in Sweden. With regular heating, for example over an oven, the water molecules are shaken to increase the temperature. The method of Caleman's team, however, was fundamentally different, as the X-ray laser removed the electrons from the water molecules, destroying the balance of the electric charges, and moving the atoms violently.
What will scientists do with the fastest in the world? Water Heater?
The immediate heating of water to 100,000 degrees Celsius, however, is only the first part of the experiment that Caleman's team will perform.
When the X-ray laser is used for heating, water transitions from liquid to plasma, that is, a state of matter where the electrons have been removed from the atoms, thereby generating an electrically charged gas. As water undergoes this transformation, its density remains like liquid water. This is because the atoms have not moved significantly in such a short time.
This state of matter could not be found naturally on Earth.
"It has properties similar to those of some plasmas in the sun and gas of the giant Jupiter, but it has a lower density and is now hotter than the Earth's core," noted study co-author Olof Jonsson, also from Uppsala University.
The experiment allows researchers to learn more about the general properties of water. Water contains many anomalies, including its thermal conductivity, heat capacity and density, all of which are important to sustain life on Earth.
