On compression of ice i at K, ice ix is crystallized and no HDA ice is found; further compression of ice ix results in the sequential phase transitions to stable ices vi and viii. The corresponding Knudsen number, the ratio of ion mean-free path to minimum shell radius, varied from 0. Cooling ice i to K at 0. Our extensive investigations provide previously missing information on the phase diagram of water, especially on the kinetic paths that result in formation of phases which otherwise are not accessible; these results are keys for understanding the phase relations including the formation of metastable phases.
