NUST MISIS Supercomputer Calculates Paths in Quest of New States of Matter

Through the application of quantum mechanical modelling calculated with the use of computational capability, the Laboratory for the Modeling and Development of New Materials (NUST MISiS) research team, led by visiting professor I. Abrikosov (Linkoeping University, Sweden), theoretically substantiated the results of a unique experiment conducted earlier by Bayreuth University (Germany) scientists on metallic osmium compression under the extreme pressure of more than 7.7 million atmospheres.
