There has been extraordinary developments in the field of high-pressure materials research. Presented within traditional forums of geoscience and planetary science, materials science under pressure is acquiring a life of its own and high pressure is being used as a window to explore problems in these fields. It is undeniable that high-pressure research has gained a number of contributors from outside the community and occurred as tabletop high-pressure experiments became possible due to the use of diamond anvils cells, the development of accurate and convenient pressure and accelerating developments in techniques used for probing physical and chemical properties of materials at high pressure. This book highlights materials science at the intersection of diverse disciplines. Topics include: earth materials at high pressure; dynamic compression; static compression; new techniques - theory and experiments; high-pressure synthesis and superhard materials; hydrogen at high temperature; semi-conductors and superconductors at high pressure; dense solids - molecular and metallic; and metastability, amorphization and glasses.
