Optical Kerr effect studies of the dynamics of confined water

Time resolved optical Kerr effect measurements have been used to det. the orientational dynamics of water in the pores of ZrO2 nanostructured films. We demonstrate that local heating effects can safely be ignored and present our results which are manifestly incompatible with the existence of a bulk-like population of water mols. in the core of the pores.
