The Lyman Laboratory of Physics (named for the physicist Theodore Lyman) is a facility at Harvard University, located between the Jefferson and Crufts Laboratories near the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.[1] It was built in the early 1930s, to a design by Coolidge, Shepley, Bulfinch and Abbott.[2] Among the staff are Sheldon Lee Glashow, Higgins Professor of Physics, Emeritus and Richard Wilson (physicist), Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics, Emeritus.[3] Here, Ranga Dias (Post-Doctoral Fellow)[4] and Isaac F. Silvera (Thomas D. Cabot Professor of the Natural Sciences)[3] claim to have gathered experimental evidence that solid metallic hydrogen had been synthesised.[5]
