The researchers took a microscopic high-pressure cooker called a diamond anvil cell (within a tiny space about as wide as a pencil lead), in which they combined ingredients: aluminum oxide, water, and the mineral olivine.
After a review of basic concepts of material strength, chapters cover nonferrous alloys, steels and super-alloys, sinter materials, pressure transmitting media, and various types of cells, including liquid/gas and clamp pressure cells, McWhan-type cells, sapphire and diamond anvil cells, uniaxial pressure cells, and Paris-Edinburgh cells.
