Quasicrystals are solids with quasiperiodic crystallographic order and rotational symmetries forbidden by classical crystallography. Because of their unusual physical properties, including high strength, quasicrystals are of interest for potential energy. As a result, their behavior under extreme conditions has been of interest to EFree...

Superconductivity is a rare physical state in which matter is able to conduct electricity - maintain a flow of electrons - without any resistance. It can only be found in certain materials, and even then it can only be achieved at very low temperatures and often only at high pressure. New research from Carnegie’s Elissaios Stavrou,...

New work from Carnegie EFree scientists Russell Hemley and Ivan Naumov hones in on the physics underlying the recently discovered fact that some metals stop being metallic under pressure. Metals are compounds that are capable of conducting the flow of electrons that make up an electric current. Other materials, called insulators, are not...
