High Pressure

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with our own Yingwei Fei.  He will present, "Recovery of an oxidized majorite inclusion from Earth's deep asthenosphere: A unique window into the redox state and convection of the mantle."

High Pressure

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Amy Jenei from LLNL.  She will present, "Using laser compression to probe solid and plassma equation of state to unprecedented pressure regimes at the National Ignition Facility."

Geochemistry, High Pressure

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Michael Walter from the University of Bristol.  He will present, "The Fate of Deeply Subducted Carbon."

High Pressure, Planetary Science

Washington, DC— Did you know that there are at least 17 crystalline forms of ice, many of them formed under extreme pressures, such as those found in the interiors of frozen planets? New work from a team led by Carnegie’s Timothy Strobel has identified the structure of a new type of ice crystal that resembles the mineral quartz and is stuffed with over five weight percent of energy-rich hydrogen molecules, which is a long-standing Department of Energy goal for hydrogen storage.  

High Pressure, Materials

Washington, DC— New work from a team led by the Geophysical Laboratory's Alexander Goncharov has created a new extremely incompressible carbon nitride compound. They say it could be the prototype for a whole new family of superhard materials, due to the unexpected ratio of carbon and nitrogen atoms. Their work is published in the journal Chemistry of Materials.

High Pressure, Planetary Science

Asmaa Boujibar is a Carnegie Fellow from NASA Johnson Space Center. She explores various aspects of planetary differentiation using high pressure and temperature experiments.

High Pressure

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Colin Jackson from the Geophysical Laboratory.  He will present, "Discrete stages of core formation survive the moon forming impact."

High Pressure, Materials

Li Zhu joins the Geophysical Laboratory as a postdoctoral associate from the University of Basel. Li is working with Timothy Strobel on the development of a reaction pathway prediction method to be able to apply the method and predict reaction pathways and transition states.

High Pressure, Mineralogy

Zachary Geballe studies the physical properties of geological materials at the pressures and temperatures that occur deep inside the Earth. His current focus is to understand the ways in which simple materials become disordered at near melting temperatures.

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with our own Zachary Geballe.  He will present, "High-pressure calorimetry: a new experimental tool and its application to H2O."
