""In this paper we analyze molecular dynamics simulation results on supercooled water in a. MCM-41 pore in order to test the mode coupling theory. A layer analysis must be performed for. water in the pore in order to exclude the contribution of water bound to the strongly hydrophilic. surface. Upon supercooling a range of temperatures is reached where the liquid follows the. mode coupling theory. From the power law behavior of the relaxation times extracted from the. Kohlrausch–William–Watts fit to the self-intermediate scattering function, we obtain the. crossover temperature TC and the γ exponent of the theory. The time–temperature superposition. principle is also satisfied. A fit to the von Schweidler law yields a coefficient b from which all. the other parameters of the theory have been calculated. In particular, we obtained the same. value of γ as extracted from the power law fit to the relaxation times, in agreement with the. requirements of the theory. For very low temperatures, the mode coupling theory no longer. holds as hopping processes intervene and water turns its behavior to that of a strong liquid.""
