LiFePO4 is an important base material for generation of new batteries. One of the important developments is its use in the form of a solid glass, which allows an increase in the electrical conductivity after the high-pressure process. Such a treatment allows full control of the vitrification and nanocrystallization processes as well. This report shows the basic reference for the pressure dependence of the glass transition temperature. The unique behavior has been proven with a maximum of Tg (P) already at moderate pressures. The protocol for depicting the resulting evolution is as follows: it enables a reliable extrapolation beyond the experimental domain. The importance of the presented results for the general topic of glass transition physics is also remarkable due to the scant evidence of the existence of systems with clearly inverted vitrification under compression.
