The iron-oxygen system is the most important reference of a rock’s oxidation state. Even as minor components in many petrologic systems, iron oxides can play a critical role in controlling redox equilibria, which in turn affect the speciation of fluid phases, chemical differentiation, melting behavior, and other important physical...

CDAC graduate student Greg Hohensee and his research advisor, CDAC Academic Partner David Cahill at the University of Illinois, have used diamond anvil cell techniques to uncover new physics associated with heat transfer across diamond-metal interfaces. Their paper, published in Nature Communications, illustrated the critical role of...

The matter that makes up distant planets and even-more-distant stars exists under extreme pressure and temperature conditions, and includes the noble gases, some of which - such as helium and neon - are household names. New work by a group from Carnegie, the University of Edinburgh, DESY, and Howard University used laboratory techniques...

A team of scientists from Carnegie and George Mason University, using facilities at HPCAT, have provided new insights on the behavior of silica under pressure at room temperature. Silica is one of the most abundant minerals and a major component of the Earth’s crust and mantle. Its various high-pressure forms make it an important study...
