Researchers at the Graz University of Technology have found that a strong electric field will support a 25 mm long horizontal bridge of water between two beakers. Elmar Fuchs and colleagues demonstrated the phenomenon with 25 kV and two containers of highly deionized water. The details of just how the bridge forms and how it holds up are still not clear. Suggestions have included a new form of organization of water with large macroscopic alignments of the electric dipoles in the liquid of the bridge.
