Latest High pressure Stories
The study of materials at extreme conditions took a giant leap forward with the discovery of a way to generate super high pressures without using shock waves whose accompanying heat turns solids to liquid.
In the search for superconductors, finding ways to compress hydrogen into a metal has been a point of focus ever since scientists predicted many years ago that electricity would flow, uninhibited, through such a material.
By combining high pressure with high temperature, Livermore researchers have created a nanocyrstalline diamond aerogel that could improve the optics for something as big as a telescope or as small as the lenses in eyeglasses.
The capture and storage of carbon dioxide in deep geologic formations, a strategy for minimizing the impacts of greenhouse gases on global warming, may currently be technologically feasible.
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The Safe Pac(TM) Corporation now offers USDA and FDA-approved High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) to packers, food processors and manufacturers on a contract service basis.
Scientists have wondered for some time why certain seismic waves travel more quickly through the core-mantle boundary, a thin layer of the Earth's interior that lies between about 1675 and 1800 miles below the surface.
Using a diamond-anvil cell to recreate the high pressures deep within the earth, researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have found unusual properties in an iron-rich magnesium- and iron-oxide mineral that may explain the existence of several ultra-low velocity zones (ULVZs) at the coreâ€“mantle boundary.
The world's biggest Roman candle has got nothing on this.
Scientists have used quantum mechanics to reveal that the most common mineral on Earth is relatively uncommon deep within the planet.
