Dr. Raj Dutta completed his PhD in the mineral physics group at Princeton University. Dutta's PhD work involved studying analogs of silicate and oxide mineral phases at multi-megabar pressures using laser-heated diamond anvil cells combined with in-situ powder x-ray diffraction. At Carnegie Science, he will be focusing on he will be focusing on dynamic compression techniques, particularly using gas guns. Dutta will work with Dr. Sally June Tracy to understand the high-pressure phase transitions in geophysically important mantle phases and their analogs. Dutta's research interests center around studying materials under extreme pressure and temperature conditions using a wide array of experimental techniques.

Washington, DC— Every school child learns about the water cycle—evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and collection.

High Pressure

Washington, DC— Pressure improves the ability of materials to turn heat into electricity and could potentially be used to create clean generators, according to new work from a team that includes Carnegie’s Alexander Goncharov and Viktor Struzhkin published in
