Comment on "Observation of the Wigner-Huntington transition to metallic hydrogen"

Eugene Gregoryanz, Philip Dalladay-Simpson, Xiao-Di Liu, Ross T. Howie, Bing Li

Dias and Silvera (Research Article, 17 February 2017, p. 715) claim the observation of the Wigner-Huntington transition to metallic hydrogen at 495 gigapascals. We show that neither the claims of the record pressure nor the phase transition to a metallic state are supported by data and that the data contradict the authors’ own unconfirmed previous results.
