Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 9)


There have been many national and international scientific and technological gatherings in recent years in which the subject of discussion has centered around physical and chemical investigations at extremes of environment. Phenomena at extremely high pressures, at very high temperatures, and at cryogenic temperatures have all attracted the attention of many in the scientific community because of the dual significance of much of the work to both the fundamentalist, who is interested in understanding nature, and to the applied scientist, who is concerned with the useful aspects of the products and phenomena that may be produced.
