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.

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."

Washington, DC— Hydrogen is the most-abundant element in the universe. It’s also the simplest—sporting only a single electron in each atom. But that simplicity is deceptive, because there is still so much we have to learn about hydrogen.
