It is published on the July 4th, 2010 Nature Chemistry by Minseob Kim, Mathew Debessai & Choong-Shik Yoo from Washington State Univ.. Truly fascinating stuff.

Metalized Fluorine poses an interesting read. Can someone please post a link to the research or any published work? I am interested to know: 1) What are the electrical properties of this Fluorine-semiconductor material? 2) What conditions are needed in order for this metallic-Fluorine or semiconductor-Fluorine to exist once the 100GPa/50GPa pressure is removed? 3) Any further details on the proposed engineering applications mentioned (e.g., oxidizer for microbes, fuel cells and superconductors)?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
