Transformation Pressure of ZnS by a New Primary Pressure Technique

  • A. L. Ruoff

The transformation of zinc sulfide to the conducting State under high pressure has been observed previously by several different techniques [1–3]; however, the transformation pressures were obtained from hypothetical or extrapolated pressure scales. The present experiment was designed to measure the transformation pressure by a primary pressure method using an indentor-anvil system made of single-crystal diamond.
