Research overview:
New phases of carbon are explored by shock compression and rapid quenching (SCARQ) method which can realize high pressures (-100GPa), high temperatures (-10,000K), and high quenching rate (10(10)k/s). Various phases, n-diamond, glassy diamond, nanocrystalline transparent diamond, and 2.45-i-carbon are already produced by this method.
