申报摘要：High-pressure techniques are powerfultools to explore new materials and novel properties at high pressure andtemperature. There are significant advances in static and dynamic compressiontechniques in recent years. I use a range of static and dynamic high-pressuretechniques to investigate matters under extreme conditions. I will discuss myrecent work on mesoporous materials at high pressure, finding new pathways fornano-casting and synthesis of nanocrystals of superhard materials; and on thecomposition of planetary cores, presenting an integrated approach toexperimentally constrain the light elements in the core from geochemical andgeophysical data.
