Abstract:

This monograph represents an overview of the field of high pressure science and technology in Japan. It is based primarily on discussions held with scientists during on-site visitations to forty-three Japanese high pressure laboratories during the period from January to April, 1978. Particular attention is focused on the development of new or improved high pressure apparatus and efforts to synthesize super-hard materials via high pressure techniques, e.g., diamond and cubic boron nitride. Special note is also given to new or unusual high pressure data collection techniques extended x-ray absorption fine structure and position sensitive proportional counters are two examples. Areas of scientific concern span the gambit from high pressure solid state physics and chemistry to studies of geophysical and biochemical reaction at elevated pressures. Appendices are provided with listings of Japanese scientists currently engaged in high pressure research and addresses of the appropriate institutional affilitations. Author
