For the first time, a contactless inductive method has been devised for measurements of the electrical conductivity of metallic materials under very high pressures (>1 GPa). A sample in the form of a thin disc is placed in a pick-up coil in a steady-state AC magnetic field. The output voltage from the coil is analysed with a lock-in amplifier to find the component due to eddy currents in the sample, from which the conductivity is calculated, using a semi-empirical expression. The influence of the steel pressure vessel is eliminated by making simultaneous measurements on a known reference material. Experimental results are shown for tin and sodium up to 1.3 GPa.
