Open RQC colloquium. Lecture 29


The Twenty Ninth lecture "Why carbon is an outstanding element?" in Open RQC Colloquium will be held in National University of Science and Technology MISIS (Moscow, Leninskiy prospekt 4) lecture hall № Б-536 (5th floor), on 6th of October 2017 at 10:00 a.m by Vadim Veniaminovich Brazhkin, the Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ph.D., the Director of the Institute for High Pressure Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IHPP RAS), the Member of the 1st July Club. In 2017 V. V. Brazhkin was awarded a prestigeous Stoletov Prize.

Abstract

We‘ll discuss the carbon formation and carbon materials in the Universe and in the Earth. In particular we'll consider anthropic principle and Hoyle resonance; diamonds origin in Neptune; methane lakes in Titan, abiogenic oil formation etc. The main attention will be paid to the carbon-based materials and their application including modern electronics, superhard materials etc.. It will be explained why carbon is a unique element of the periodic system. At the end of the talk we’ll briefly concern the study of carbon materials in the Institute for High Pressure Physics.
