Peter Celliers is a staff scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory where he works in the inertial confinement fusion (ICF) program. For many years he has been involved in developing advanced instrumentation and techniques for measuring the properties of materials undergoing dynamic compression, such as by shock waves launched by high-energy laser pulses. His research is currently focused on experimental studies of materials at extreme conditions for projects both in the ICF program and in other areas of high-energy-density sciences.


Hydrogen Hides Surprises at High Pressure

Measurements of the melting curve of hydrogen at unprecedentedly high pressures call for a refinement of the theories describing the material. Read More »
