This autumn three young Ph.D.candidates started their work journey at RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics. Michael Haahr from Denmark is one of them.
At the crushing pressures of the Earth’s lower mantle electrons were long ago predicted to undergo a quantum change. But it had escaped geophysical detection for decades, until now. A study in Nature Communications found the signature by studying the coldest and hottest regions, and suggests that the inside of our planet is more complex than we thought.
