High Pressure Research at Low Temperatures

One of 130 reports in the series: Ames Laboratory, Iowa State University (IS) available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Two principle reasons exist for the extension of high pressure research to temperatures near absolute zero. First, the comparison of certain data with theory (such as the pressure-volume relationship) is more meaningful if the effects of thermal vibrations can be ignored. Second, there are phenomena which can be studied only at low temperatures. These include superconductivity, the properties of solid helium and other inert gases, some electronic phenomena, etc.
