Title: A study of tantalum pentoxide Ta 2O 5 structures up to 28 GPa

Abstract

In this study, tantalum pentoxide Ta 2O 5 with the orthorhombic L-Ta 2O 5 structure has been experimentally studied up to 28.3 GPa (at ambient temperature) using synchrotron angle-dispersive powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). The ambient pressure phase remains stable up to 25 GPa where with increased pressure a crystalline to amorphous phase transition occurs. A detailed equation of state (EOS), including pressure dependent lattice parameters, is reported. The results of this study were compared with a previous high-pressure XRD study by Li et al. A clear discrepancy between the ambient-pressure crystal structures and, consequently, the reported EOSs between the two studies was revealed. Finally, he origin of this discrepancy is attributed to two different crystal structures used to index the XRD patterns.
