Some Applications of High Pressure Studies of Phase Transitions in Solids

  • G. A. Samara

Abstract

High-pressure research has contributed significantly to our understanding of the properties of matter. Perhaps there is no one area to which high-pressure research has contributed more than that of phase transitions in solids. High-pressure studies have improved our understanding of the properties of materials near phase transitions and of the mechanisms for certain types of transitions. Such studies have also led to the discovery of a very large number of new phase transitions which can be induced by pressure alone.
