HPCAT Group Leader Maddury Somayazulu featured in Scientific American article

HPCAT Group Leader, Maddury Somayazulu, was recently featured in the October 2019 issue of Scientific American.  The article highlights some of Dr. Somayazulu’s scientific work, and in particular his effort in using high pressure and synchrotron x-ray techniques toward understanding and discovery of room-temperature superconductors.  Dr. Somayazulu, along with HPCAT partner Professor Rus Hemley (University of Illinois at Chicago) and collaborators from Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C., have gained significant attention recently for their discovery of near room-temperature superconductivity in LaH10 at high pressure conditions.
