Pressure-Driven Fermi Surface Reconstruction of Chromium

Using the 35 T and 45T magnet systems, coupled with high pressures up to 1.47 GPa, researchers at the Magnet Lab have observed a massive, pressure induced change in the Fermi surface of elemental chromium. Part of this reorganization results in the creation of quantum interference oscillations at high pressures which behave differently from those arising from standard Landau quantization.
