:hmm:

"A long-standing goal of physicists, chemists, and materials scientists is to have a perfect phase diagram of a material. EFree researchers Xiao-Jia Chen, Yue Meng, Viktor Struzhkin, and Ho-Kwang (Dave) Mao, along with collaborators from China, reported on delicate experiments designed to obtain a complete high-pressure phase diagram of the compressed Ge. Their results show extraordinary agreement between theory and experiment in terms of the way germanium behaves under pressure.

Research predicts Germanium's pressure-dependent superconductivity up to 190 GPa, which helps classification of Ge as a standard electron-phonon coupling superconductor. The research article, published by Physical Review Letters, reported that under pressure of 66 GPa, germanium undergoes a structural change from the metallic white tin structure to an orthorhombic Imma structure. It then undergoes another change under pressure of 90 GPa to the simple hexagonal structure. These findings matched with theoretical predictions about the element’s behavior under extreme pressure.

Ge is an important element for semiconductor industry and has many advantages over Si due to its higher intrinsic electron mobilities, higher intrinsic carrier concentrations; larger bulk excitonic Bohr radii, enabling integration with current semiconductor processing technology. Ge’s compatibility with group III-IV materials (e.g. good lattice matching with GaAs) and germanium oxide’s optical properties allow radial integrated optoelectronic circuitry designs. Ge is an ideal material for experimental and theoretical studies due to the crystal structure change of Ge at high pressures from the semiconducting diamond-type structure to high-symmetry structures of increasing coordination.

This research was supported by the Department of Energy in the United States and by the HKRGS and NSFC in China.

There was an OC81D fueled MH deluxe that surfaced on Ebay a few years back. I am still kicking myself in the ass for not bidding higher on it. I know there are a few out there but not sure of exact numbers.

I would absolutely love to score any Germanium fueled Meathead, Flesh Head, Deluxe doesn't matter. I think the Meathead is a genius box and one of the best pedals in the entire line up.

Damn, so few of those around, but I'd love to track one down..

^^^ I'm with you there. When the auction was happening everyone and their brother said they were going to go for it. In the end I am not sure who bid on it from the forum, if anyone. I may have been the one of the few.

more pics :badteeth:
I'm wondering how they sounds like... anybody saw some demos?

FINALLY got the busted screw out of the Ge meat, so I've whipped out the dead battery and it's ready to rock.......... Once I get some replacement screws, as I lost ALL of them! I'm really not worthy. Still, there's always the duck tape solution.......'if you can't duck it, fuck it!'
