Geochemistry, High Pressure, Materials

Washington, DC, 26 November 2012 -- The Geophysical Laboratory’s Stewart McWilliams and his team find evidence that alters our understanding of planetary evolution.

High Pressure, Materials

Washington, DC—Carnegie scientists are the first to discover the conditions under which nickel oxide can turn into an electricity-conducting metal.

High Pressure, Materials

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.

High Pressure

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.

High Pressure

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.

Geochemistry, High Pressure

Washington, DC, 28 March 2012- A Carnegie scientists' observations have led the way to stabilizing tungsten hydrides under high pressure.

High Pressure, Materials

Washington, DC — Superconductivity is a rare physical state in which matter is able to conduct electricity—maintain a flow of electrons—without any resistance.

High Pressure

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.

High Pressure, Materials

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.

High Pressure, Materials

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.
