Computational analysis demonstrated that the penetration of a shaped charge jet could be substantially enhanced by imploding the liner in a high pressure light gas atmosphere. The gas pressure helps confine the jet on the axis of penetration in the latter stages of formation. A light gas, such as helium or hydrogen, is required in order to keep the gas density low enough so as not to inhibit liner collapse. The computational analysis has now been experimentally confirmed.

    Successive magnetic-field-induced charge-density-wave transitions in the layered molecular conductor α-(BEDT-TTF)2KHg(SCN)4 are studied in a hydrostatic pressure regime in which the zero field charge-density- wave (CDW) state is completely suppressed. It is shown that the orbital effect of...

    HMTSF-TCNQ is a quasi-one-dimensional organic conductor which undergoes CDW(charge density wave) transition at 30 K at ambient pressure, where HMTSF-TCNQ is hexamethylenetetraselena fulvalene-tetracyano quino dimethane. This CDW is suppressed by the pressure of 1 GPa. At this pressure, we found...

    Superconductivity in so-called unconventional superconductors is nearly always found in the vicinity of another ordered state, such as antiferromagnetism, charge density wave (CDW), or stripe order. This suggests a fundamental connection between superconductivity and fluctuations in some other...

    The reflection of electrons incident from a normal metal on the boundary of the metal with a quasi-one-dimensional conductor containing a charge-density wave (CDW) is investigated theoretically. It is shown that the reflection is not of an Andreev character but rather of a Bragg character. This...
