High Pressure Physics

Dr. Yogesh Vohra, ykvohra@uab.edu, 934-6662

We are interested in the physical properties (crystal structures, electrical, and magnetic properties) under extreme conditions of pressures and temperatures in controlled laboratory environments.

We carry out the following measurements:

  • Electrical and magnetic properties at low temperatures and high pressures using designer diamond anvils.
  • X-ray diffraction measurements using National Synchrotron Facilities like Advanced Photon Source and National Synchrotron Light Source.
