Research Interest:

Pressure induces dramatic changes in materials. Study the behavior of materials under compression which often leads to the discovery of novel phases and new phenomena. This research has a wide variety of applications including improving our understanding the interiors of Earth and other planetary bodies, providing insight into the condensation and evolution of volatiles in planetary systems, and providing guidance for developing new materials for applications like hydrogen fuel storage and advanced batteries.

Viktor V. Struzhkin focuses on experimental research at high pressures. He undertakes transport and magnetic measurements, and applies optical and synchrotron spectroscopy techniques to geophysics, planetary science and condensed matter physics research. He obtained a Ph.D in solidstate physics from Institute for High Pressure Physics, Russian Academy of Science in 1991 and a combined BSc and MSc in physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Russia in 1980.


He is staff member of the Geophysical Laboratory. At the Carnegie Institution, he pioneered a suit of transport measurements in diamond anvil cells succeeding in measurements of superconductivity at very high pressures in excess of 200 GPa (2 million atmospheres). He is recognized expert in a multitude of experimental techniques in diamond anvil cells, including transport measurements, optical and synchrotron spectroscopy. His research interests cover condensedmatter physics, simple molecular solids, the chemistry and physics of the Earth’s mantle and core, and high pressure materials science.

John S. Tse started his research career in synchrotron radiation in 1975. After receiving his Ph.D.from the University of Western Ontario 1980, he moved to the Chemistry Division of the National Research Council of Canada in Ottawa as an NSERC Fellow. He was appointed scientific officer in 1981. In 1990, he moved to the newly created NRC Steacie Institute for Molecular Science. He progressed quickly through the ranks and achieved the highest level of principal research officer in 2000. He was the leader of the Theory and Computation Program from 1995 to 2004. In 2004, he joined the University of Saskatchewan as a Tier One Canada Research Chair in the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics.


Dr. Tse has a very broad research interest at the converging frontiers of chemistry and physics. During his undergraduate years, he worked as a researcher in the X-ray crystallography laboratory helping to solve crystal structures. His first scientific paper in 1975 was on the elucidation of the structure of Dacron. In his early career, he made several ground-breaking contributions to natural gas hydrates, an abundant source of fossil energy. A notable example is the theory he developed to explain the anomalous glass-like thermal conduction behaviour of crystalline gas hydrates. This theory was later adopted as a new paradigm on the rational design of efficient thermoelectric materials. His interest in high-pressure science started in early 1990 when he explained the phenomenon of pressure amorphization of crystalline solids. For this work, he was awarded the 1995 Chemical Society of Canada Noranda (later the Keith Laidler) award for a physical chemist under the age of 45. He advanced concepts on the design of superalloys, Li ion batteries, thermoelectric and hydrogen storage materials. He is an internationally recognized expert in ice physics. Since moving to the university, he has focused on the superconductivity behaviour of dense hydrogen alloys and magnetic single-moleculeradical solids under compression. He co-discovered the first nano-molecular metal in 2012. Dr. Tse has published over 470 articles and close to 20 reviews and book chapters in diverse subjects. Many of the papers appeared in the most prestigious scientific journals. He has presented more than 250 lectures at international conferences and workshops. He served on many national and international committees.


He was elected to a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 2008 and received the Distinguished Researcher Award of the University of Saskatchewan in 2010 and earned a D. Scin 2012.

Simon Redfern is professor of Mineral Physics at the University of Cambridge, Department of Earth Sciences. Before coming to Cambridge, Simon was Lecturer in Geochemical Spectroscopy in the Departments of Earth Sciences and Chemistry at the University of Manchester. He is the Chair of the NERC Cambridge Earth System Science DTP as well as being a Director of Studies at Jesus College.


Simon is currently a member of the NERC Science & Innovation Strategy Board, the Peer Review College, as well as serving as a member of Science Board at STFC. Recently, Simon served as a British Science Association Science Media Fellow at the BBC, experiencing the mechanisms by which scientific discovery and journalistic exposition interact, both in written and broadcast media. He is keen to help in efforts to make scientific methods and processes, as well as discoveries, accessible to a wide audience.


Research Interests

Simon's research covers a broad range of interests all linked by their relationship to the atomic-scale, nano-scale and microscopic structure of minerals. They all deal with the relationship between mineral structure & microstructure and chemical & physical properties. He is interested in the relationships between structure, dynamics and properties of crystalline solids from the Earth's core to the biosphere, and how these properties impact upon broader Earth and environmental processes. This includes the relationship between microstructure of biominerals and the physical properties of the structures that they form, the microstructure of rock-forming minerals and their seismic signatures (relevant to interpretations of deep Earth data), and the microstructures of manufactured materials based on mineral structures which may form the basis of new wasteforms for clean energy production. His work employs experimental methods in the lab and at national Synchrotron and Neutron radiation facilities.
