Materials

Intermetallic compounds are bestowed by diverse compositions, complex structures, and useful properties for many materials applications. How metallic elements react to form these compounds and what structures they adopt remain challenging questions that defy predictability.

Reynold E. Silber of Yale University will present on "Electrical resistivity of nickel, iron and iron-silicon alloy melts at high pressure with implications for the thermal conductivity of the Earth’s core."

Materials

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with DuckYoung Kim of the Center for High-Pressure Science and Technology Advanced Research (HPSTAR).

Geochemistry, Planetary Science

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Joe Michael of Sandia National Laboratory. He will present, "Electron backscatter diffraction in materials and planetary sciences: From welds to iron meteorites."

High Pressure, Materials, Matter at Extreme States

New work from a team led by the Geophysical Laboratory’s Alexander Goncharov confirms that nitrogen, the dominant gas in Earth’s atmosphere, becomes a metallic fluid when subjected to the extreme pressure and temperature conditions found deep inside the Earth and other planets. Their findings are published by Nature Communications.

High Pressure, Materials, Matter at Extreme States

The Geophysical Laboratory's Jianjun Ying and Viktor Struzhkin are part of a team that have found an unusual pressure induced PLD in a TMDs-related material SnSe2. Their work is published in Physical Review Letters.

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."

Materials

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Kristin Persson of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She will present, "The Materials Project for Accelerated Materials Design."

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.

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."
