EFree holds its third annual meeting

The Center's members composed of principal investigators, postdocs and graduate students presented updates on their research and inspired others to collaborate more fully within the Center's nine member universities, four national labs and Carnegie Institution.audience

Rare earth manganites (LaMnO3) exhibits colossal magnetoresistance

Efree members M. Baldini, V. V. Struzhkin, A. F. Goncharov, and W. L. Mao published the findings of their research on rare earth lanthanum manganite (LaMnO3), the parent compound for many hole doped manganites which exhibit colossal magnetoresistance (CMR).

Melting of transition metals

The differences in melting temperatures of transition metals between static and shock measurements are several thousand degrees at Megabar pressures. New measurements using X-ray diffraction, X-ray absorption and the measurement of latent heat related to melting will be performed. Additionally, textural melt features observed on quenched samples (see figure) will be analyzed using electron microscopy.
