An international team of researchers headed by Prof. Dr. Natalia Dubrovinskaia and Prof. Dr. Leonid Dubrovinsky of the University of Bayreuth has succeeded in creating a pressure of 1 trillion pascals in a laboratory. A study published in Science Advances is opening up new research prospects in physics, solid state chemistry, materials science, geophysics, and astrophysics. To set this record, a double-sided diamond anvil cell was used:between the two surfaces of a common diamond anvil cell, two nano-crystalline microscopic diamond hemispheres are placed. The recordpressure can be applied to samples paced between those hemispheres.
