Washington, DC—Carnegie scientists are the first to discover the conditions under which nickel oxide can turn into an electricity-conducting metal.
Washington, DC — A team of scientists led by Carnegie’s Lin Wang has observed a new form of very hard carbon clusters, which are unusual in their mix of crystalline and disordered structure. The material is capable of indenting diamond.
Washington, DC, 4 May 2012- A collaborative experimental effort with Carnegie researchers has discovered unknown properties of a computer memory material that will allow for faster data transfer with a higher capacity of data stored.
Washington, DC — How hydrogen--the most abundant element in the cosmos--responds to extremes of pressure and temperature is one of the major challenges in modern physical science.
Washington, DC, 28 March 2012- A Carnegie scientists' observations have led the way to stabilizing tungsten hydrides under high pressure.
Washington, DC — Superconductivity is a rare physical state in which matter is able to conduct electricity—maintain a flow of electrons—without any resistance.
Washington, DC, 21 February 2012- In a combined experimental effort researchers from the Geophysical Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences now have a better understanding of a form of high pressure methane clathrate hydrate.
Washington, DC—The crushing pressures and intense temperatures in Earth’s deep interior squeeze atoms and electrons so closely together that they interact very differently. With depth materials change.
Washington, DC,16 December 2011- Carnegie scientists have discovered a new compound composed of H2S and H2. The results further elucidate the role of pressure on intermolecular interactions in molecular compounds.
Washington, DC — The composition of the Earth’s core remains a mystery. Scientists know that the liquid outer core consists mainly of iron, but it is believed that small amounts of some other elements are present as well.
