This Wednesday evening the Australian Institute of Physics will be holding its annual 'Women in Physics' public lecture in the Ross Lecture Theatre at UWA.
This year the speaker will be Assoc Prof Jodie Bradby from ANU who will be speaking on the new materials and modified properties that can be achieved with ultra-high pressures.
"Uncovering new materials under extreme pressures: Diamonds are a scientist's best friend"
Diamond are formed deep in the earth where high pressures and high temperatures slowly work to turn carbon-containing minerals into the hardest material known to science. In this talk, the discovery of a range of exciting new and useful materials formed at similar pressures and temperatures will be discussed. Many of these new crystal structures form naturally as nano-materials and have various applications including potential new materials for solar applications.
