Hydrostatic pressure provides a convenient means of controllably manipulating many material properties such unit cell size, crystal structure, and energy gap. In this presentation, I will review the experimental aspects of generating and characterizing high pressures and present literature-based studies of relevance to nanocrystal materials research.
