Towards materials at extremes: from intense dynamic compression to expansion

Project description

Efficient techniques to study materials at extreme conditions

Generating ultra-high pressures, comparable with those in Earth’s core, as well as negative pressures in liquids, usually demand unique and expensive facilities with quite limited access. The EU-funded DYNPRESS project aims to overcome this limitation. It will develop efficient and affordable methods for generating both imploding shock waves and rarefaction waves, that should respectively allow studying both extreme compression and tension of liquids in the everyday laboratory environment. Project activities will involve developing a facility that supports both fundamental and applied research.
