The properties of materials are altered, sometimes radically, when very high pressures are applied. This book surveys the apparatus available for high pressure studies with a particular emphasis on diamond anvil cells and related equipment. It also examines pressure measurement techniques atextreme values. A large part of the book considers the experimental needs and arrangement for studies involving the interaction of high pressures with high and low temperatures, magnetic fields, and shock waves. Optical properties, Brillouin and Raman scattering, infrared spectroscopy, eletronspin and nuclear magnetic resonance at high pressures are also covered.
M. I. Eremets is at Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow.

Editorial Reviews

This book is a worthy addition to the literature on high-pressure techniques. Every laboratory using high pressure should buy this book to complement earlier books which have a different emphasis. Anyone who wants just one text, perhaps because high pressure might be useful, should certainlychoose this one. Measurement Science and Technology
