If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Edward Cackett.

In large systems with interacting components one often finds emergent behavior unforeseen on the basis of the individual components. This principle is called emergence and is underlying a variety of phenomena across all disciplines from humanities to natural sciences. In my talk I will discuss emergent behavior in metals. Here, tuning the interactions between electrons provides a route to new states of matter and helps to understand phenomena like superconductivity. A powerful way to tune the electron interaction is the application of pressure. I will show our recent developments which are expected to simplify and standardize measurements at high pressures in the regime up to 100 000 bar.
