As temperature increases, magnetic materials transition from an ordered state to disordered. For each different material, this happens at a particular temperature. High pressures, achieved by using diamond anvils, can lower this temperature to close to 0K.

When the transition temperature is low enough, the material can change into new, ordered states with properties such as superconductivity, in which the material can conduct electricity with no loss of energy. How and why this happens could help us to understand many phenomena, such as High Temperature Superconductivity.
