Effects of Confinements at High Pressures
    Confinement effects that occur in crystal and electronic structures of materials have been observed in various systems, such as materials confined in 1D to 3D templates as atoms, molecules or nanosized clusters. The confined materials may exhibit unusual structural evolutions and unique properties upon compression which are different from those observed in their bulk counterparts. Such differences may yield many new insights from high pressure studies. Studies of confinement effects in 1D、2D or 3D space on high pressure transformations have been attracting an increasing amount of research interest and has become an important topic in materials science. Recently, remarkable progress has been achieved in high pressure studies related to confinement effects, such as the observations of new phase transformations in confined materials in nanospaces, resulting in quenched high pressure phases that have not been achieved earlier.
    In this session, we aim to review and exchange ideas on the latest research progress in Effects of Confinements on the transformation of materials at High Pressure, including, but not limited to, high pressure studies on materials confined in nanospaces, nanosized materials that exhibit unique properties and novel behaviors due to confinement effects.
