High-pressure neutron diffraction reveals the secrets of glasses

19 November 2012


The structural changes in glasses and liquids induced by high-pressure conditions can substantially alter their dynamical and transport properties. Unravelling the mechanisms behind these transformations is, however, a formidable task owing to the intrinsic disorder of the atomic arrangements and the need for small samples to attain high pressure conditions.

A work recently published in the Journal of Physics - condensed matter reveals the nature of density-driven structural collapse. A new probe for the structure of materials under extreme conditions is introduced.
