High Pressure, Materials

Ho-kwang Mao's research centers on ultra-high pressure physics, chemistry, material sciences, geophysics, geochemistry and planetary sciences using diamond-anvil cell techniques that he has pioneered. He received a Ph.D. and M.S. from University of Rochester in 1968 and 1966, and a B.S.

High Pressure, Materials

Viktor V. Struzhkin focuses on experimental research at high pressures. He undertakes transport and magnetic measurements, and applies optical and synchrotron spectroscopy techniques to geophysics, planetary science and condensed-matter physics research. He obtained a Ph.D.

High Pressure, Materials

Timothy Strobel's research is centered around the synthesis and characterization of novel materials for energy and advanced applications. New materials are synthesized using unique pressure-temperature conditions and through innovative processing pathways.

High Pressure

Alexander F. Goncharov's research concentrates on analyzing materials under extreme conditions such as high pressure and temperature using optical spectroscopy and other techniques.

High Pressure, Materials

Washington, DC— Using laboratory techniques to mimic the conditions found deep inside the Earth, a team of Geophysical Laboratory scientists led by Ho-Kwang “Dave” Mao has identified a form of iron oxide that they believe could explain seismic and geothermal signatures in the deep mantle. Their work is published in Nature.

High Pressure

Venkata (Venkat) Bhadram is working with Tim Strobel on EFree projects, mainly in the area of solar energy materials. He is also working on developing novel materials for photocatalytic water splitting.

Michael Guerette joins the Geophysical Laboratory as a postdoctoral associate. Michael is working with Tim Strobel on novel solar energy materials, specifically Si24 synthesis and property investigation.

High Pressure, Materials, Planetary Science

Ronald E. Cohen's primary focus is the study of materials through first principles research including properties of materials under extreme conditions such as high pressure and temperature. His research is applied to topics and problems in geophysics and technological materials.
