Additional Information

The need for new metastable materials with exotic properties is at an all-time high. The Department of Energy has made it a primary research direction to investigate materials discovery using extreme synthesis conditions. Pressure can be used as a kinetic trap to stabilize or discover compounds that cannot be synthesized under ambient conditions. The high-pressure synthesis of intermetallic superconducting Cu-Bi will be investigated from several reports authored by Freedman et al. Synthesis, structure, and stabilization will be discussed for the Cu-Bi system through the lens of pressure, as well as how the synthetic process can be applied to other systems.
