Extreme pressure causes osmium to change state of matter

Lemont IL (SPX) Sep 13, 2015

Using metallic osmium (Os) in experimentation, an international group of researchers have demonstrated that ultra-high pressures cause core electrons to interplay, which results in experimentally observed anomalies in the compression behavior of the material.

Os is one of Earth’s most exceptional elemental materials, possessing the highest known density at ambient pressure, one of the high —> Read More
