High-Density Hydrogen Research
This paper presents three different efforts at Livermore which are proceeding toward a characterization of high-density hydrogen. Two are experimental, aimed at measuring hydrogen’s properties at high density. The other is theoretical, with the goal of correlating experimental results with theoretical calculations. The results of all three efforts have proven useful to the understanding of how the molecular liquid phase, initially at a density less than 0.1 g/cm3, can be compressed more than tenfold to make the relatively dense metallic hydrogen phase forecast by Wigner and Huntington .
