Extreme Conditions – A Wondrous World
PhD defence, Friday, 18 November 2022, Emma Møller Ehrenreich-Petersen
During her PhD studies, Emma Møller Ehrenreich-Petersen investigated how extreme conditions of high pressures and high temperatures affect materials. These extreme conditions are special as they mimic the conditions found in the interior of the Earth. Emma Møller Ehrenreich-Petersen studied how inorganic materials can be squeezed into new structures and how it is possible to synthesize new materials at extreme conditions using the so-called diamond anvil cell and laser-heating technique.
The new research findings, within the discovery of new phase transitions and high-pressure compounds, contribute to the understanding of how matter behaves when it is subjected to pressures a million times higher than atmospheric pressure.
The PhD study was completed at Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University.
This summary was prepared by the PhD student.
