A Reduced-Cost Apparatus for Observing Ice Recrystallization Inhibition
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.

This document contains instructions for building a low-cost apparatus to measure ice recrystallization and ice recrystallization inhibition. The supplies are commercially-available and total a fraction of the costs of a traditional microscope and cold-stage, thereby allowing more scientists the opportunity to become involved in this research as well as build the apparatus for possible use in chemical education.
