FIELD OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates generally to the investigation of materials at high temperature and pressure and, more particularly, to the use of spectroscopic techniques to investigate boundary layers under conditions of high temperature, high pressure and shear. The invention was made with government support under Contract No. W-7405-ENG-36 awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy to the Regents of the University of California. The government has certain rights in the invention.
