Kinetics of High Pressure Phase Transitions in the Diamond Anvil Cell
- 138 Downloads
Phase transitions under high pressure have attracted widespread interest in different fields of natural sciences, e.g. in connection with high pressure materials synthesis, phase transitions in geological materials or fundamental investigations of solids under pressure. For in situ investigations of small volume samples within a broad spectrum of physical methods the diamond anvil cell (DAC) technique has been successfully developed over the last decade (Jayaraman, 1986). Besides the measurement of physical properties in thermodynamic equilibrium the DAC also allows the investigation of dynamic or time dependent phenomena if the appropriate experimental methods are applied.
