High pressure structural effects on solids can be studied using neutron (Time of Flight) diffraction. Such an experimental system is now available in the Solid State Science Division of Argonne National Laboratory, under the direction of Dr. T.G. Worlton. It is of interest to compare the results from different experimental approaches and the data from neutron (TOF) diffraction is to be compared to data derived from high pressure x-ray diffraction methods. The neutron (TOF) diffraction system at Argonne National Laboratory has been set up by Dr. T.G. Worlton and considerable aid has been received from him both in the general procedures and also in the particular details of the determination of the constants of the apparatus.
