Pressure-induced amorphization and polyamorphism: Inorganic and biochemical systems

Abstract:

Pressure-induced amorphization (PIA) is a phenomenon that involves an abrupt transition between a crystalline material and an amorphous solid through application of pressure at temperatures well below the melting point or glass transition range. Amorphous states can be produced by PIA for substances that do not normally form glasses by thermal quenching. It was first reported for ice Ih in 1984 following prediction of a metastable melting event associated with the negative initial melting slo...
