High Pressure Materials Physics Research at UNLV


Article Preview

High-pressure studies on strongly correlated-electron systems allow the study of the relationship between structural, elastic, electronic, and magnetic properties of d-and f-band systems. The High Pressure Science and Engineering Center (HiPSEC) at UNLV performs interdisciplinary research on a wide variety of materials at high pressures. One such system, YbB2 displays antiferromagnet order at ambient pressure. We present heat capacity measurements at high magnetic fields to 9 T and structural measurement at pressures up to 5 GPa on YbB2.
