Shock Compression of Solid Hydrogen
It is highly likely that future technological applications of hydrogen, such as energy storage, will benefit from an improved and detailed understanding of its fundamental nature. The study of hydrogen under extreme conditions remains experimentally very challenging. Researchers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution of Washington illustrate a technique that involves the laser shock loading of hydrogen pre-compressed in the diamond anvil cell.
