Physicists have struggled for years to prove that many materials become metallic, and perhaps even superconductors, when subjected to high pressures. The Perspective on p. 1296 discusses an innovative way to measure the electrical properties of cesium iodide, which becomes a superconductor under high pressure. Turn to the online article for links to superconductivity and condensed matter physics.
