Matter at Extreme States

New materials can contribute potential solutions to many societal issues—from increasing access to clean drinking water to improving solar panel efficiency.

High Pressure

Dr. Timothy Strobel of Carnegie Science Geophysical Laboratory will present on "Superdiamonds with tunable properties: a new class of sp3-bonded carbon-based frameworks."

Planetary Science

Dr. Esteban Gazel of Cornell University delivered a seminar on "Sampling the transition zone below Bermuda." His seminar included unpublished results, so his talk was not recorded.

Planetary Science

Dr. Michael P. Ryan of The Magma Physics Project delivered a seminar on The 2018 Eruptions of Kilauea Volcano, Hawai'i.

High Pressure

AGU announced the 2019 Fellows. Included are Bob Hazen and Mike Walter of GL.

High Pressure

Dr. Oded Navon of The Fredy & Nadine Herrmann Institute of Earth Sciences at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem will present "Diamond forming fluids: Diamond formation and other mantle processes."

High Pressure, Matter at Extreme States

Lab-based mimicry allowed an international team of physicists including the Geophysical Laboratory’s Alexander Goncharov to probe hydrogen under the conditions found in the interiors of giant planets—where experts believe it gets squeezed until it becomes a liquid metal, capable of conducting electricity. Their work is published in Science.

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.

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."
