Katsura's Lab

High-Pressure Research in Earth Science

Tomo with Mie-chan

This is the Lab for High-Pressure Earth Science by Tomo Katsura. We are studying structure, dynamics and evolution of the Earth's interior by determining physical and chemical properties of Earth's constituents under high-pressure and high-temperature conditions using multi-anvil apparatus. I would be very happy if you are interested in our research through this website.
