Multi-disciplinary Researches at Extreme Conditions (MREC) Group
Objects usually behsave surprisingly different and sometime show fascinating phenomenon when they are subjected to extreme conditions(i.e. high pressure, low/high temperature, various irradiations, etc.)!For examples, graphite transforms into diamond at high pressure and temperature conditions; metallic sodium (Na) becomes insulator at pressure of 200 GPa; semi-conducting boron (B) turns into a supercon ducting material at high pressure and low temperature; a leech survives at liquid nitrogen temperature (-196ºC); and so many others. However, all of these observations are just a tip of an iceberg of science at extreme conditions.
MREC devotes to making great contributions in uncovering the rest of the iceberg of science at extreme conditions. Our research interests cover the properties of condensed matters at extreme conditions, novel structural materials and ultra-hard materials, ultra-high static pressure (>3Mbar) technology and physics, mechanical properties of minerals in earth’s crust and mantel (earthquake mechanism), biology at extreme conditions and application, and development of new analytical techniques for in-situ studies at extreme conditions…
MREC welcomes collaborations from any field!
