Experimental techniques on production of ultra-high pressure at very low temperature, electrical resistance and magnetization measurement are developed for the purpose of searching for pressure-induced superconductivity in some simple systems. Previous results of pressure induced superconductivity of I, Br, Ca, SnI4 and C6I4O2 are reviewed and remaining problems are discussed shortly. Recent findings of metallization and superconductivity of O and S are also reported.
