Compressed diamond sheds light on mega-planets

Physicists in the United States have reported that they have compressed diamond to a density greater than that of lead, a technical feat that yields insights into the secrets of giant planets. Diamond is the hardest, strongest form of carbon on Earth and the least compressible material known. A tiny synthetic sample of it was bombarded with 176 laser beams, creating pressure waves that progressively squeezed the sample to nearly four times its normal density, the scientists reported in the journal Nature. In the 20-nanosecond operation, the diamond was exposed to pressure of five terapascals, equivalent to 50 million times the pressure of the atmosphere at Earth´s surface or 14 times the pressure at its core.
