Matter at Extreme States

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Maosheng Miao of California State University, Northridge.  He will present, "Chemical trends of elements under pressure and their effects to the form and properties of materials."

The Geophysical Laboratory's Jinanjun Ying and Viktor Struzhkin were part of a team that has recently reported a superconducting state in a honeycomb lattice of iron atoms, which opens up a new structural playground for iron-based superconductivity. So far, all iron-based superconductors structurally adopt FeSe-type layers with a square iron(II) lattice.

High Pressure, Materials, Matter at Extreme States

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Leonid Dubrovinsky of the University of Bayreuth. He will present, "High-Pressure High-Temperature Single Crystal Structural Studies at Multimegabar Pressures."

Geochemistry, High Pressure, Matter at Extreme States

Michael Walter is the Director of the Geophysical Laboratory. Walter’s research focuses on the differentiation of the mantle and core, mantle melting and element partitioning, subsolidus phase relations and crystal chemistry, and the origin of deep mantle diamonds and their inclusions.

High Pressure, Materials, Matter at Extreme States

The Geophysical Laboratory’s Tim Strobel and Venkata Bhadram now report unexpected quantum behavior of hydrogen molecules, H2, trapped within tiny cages made of organic molecules, demonstrating that the structure of the cage influences the behavior of the molecule imprisoned inside it.

Matter at Extreme States

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Stewart McWilliams of the University of Edinburgh. He will present, "Dynamic probes of structure and transport at extreme conditions."

The paradox of the missing xenon might sound like the title of the latest airport thriller, but it’s actually a problem that’s stumped geophysicists for decades. New work from an international team including the Geophysical Laboratory’s Alexander Goncharov and Hanyu Liu, and GL alumni Elissaios Stavrou and Sergey Lobanov, is chasing down the solution to this longstanding puzzle.

Matter at Extreme States

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with GL's own Tim Strobel. He will present, "Braking Rotors at the Nanoscale: How Diatomic Molecules Spin within Quantum Cages."

Matter at Extreme States

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Daniele Antonangeli of IMPMC. He will present, "Silicon abundance in the Earth's core constrained by a multi-technique approach."

Materials, Matter at Extreme States

Our Broad Branch Road Spring Neighborhood Lecture Series continues with GL's own Tim Strobel.  Strobel will present, "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger: How High Pressure and Supercomputers Will Shape Materials of the Future."
