Oxygen is a ubiquitous element, playing an essential role in many scientific and technological disciplines. Establishing the structure of a liquid or glassy oxide and thereby its relation to the functional properties of a material is not, however, a trivial task. Here we introduce the method of neutron diffraction with oxygen isotope substitution to study the structure of water. The results give insight into the role played by quantum mechanics in water’s properties.
