Additional Information: This was an invited paper on a new technique, proposed and pioneered at Sussex, to rapidly detect phase transitions. It is effective for materials including insulators, superconductors, fullerenes and metallo-organics. We now have 25 publications in the area. The method has revealed the presence of nanoparticle impurity phases which control host luminescence intensity, irreversible transitions in key photonic materials, and new high temperature superconducting transitions. It also showed that ion implantation into some materials can cause relaxations and phase changes throughout the bulk. A new review will be a keynote invited lecture in Mexico in October 2007.
