  • This paper reports on various titanium and palladium metal and hydride preparations subjected to D{sub 2} gas loading at pressures up to 2.4 kbars followed by temperature cycling. Neutron yield was monitored in an underground laboratory with a detection system with a counting efficiency of {approximately}9.2% and a background of 10 count/h. No clearly identified neutron yield in excess of background has been detected.
  • This paper reports on studies which have resulted in data on the phase transformations of transition-metal trifluorides at normal and elevated pressures which have been used in the construction of generalized p-T phase diagrams. These phase diagrams enable the forecast of the behavior of the required phases, in particular, of systems in response to pressure and temperature. Possible behavior of these compounds under pressure include: the melting points of modifications with comparatively open structures of type ..cap alpha..-UO/sub 3/ should fall on compression, while those of modifications with structures of ..beta..-YF/sub 3/ and tysonite types should increase; the anomalous coursemore » of the melting curves for the ..cap alpha.. phases provides expansion of their stability regions on the p-T diagrams on going to the trifluorides of elements with smaller ionic radii; and the maximum entropy occurs in the solid phases for the ..cap alpha.. state.« less
  • We report here a high-pressure phase-transition induced strengthening in ultrapure zirconium metal. The determined yield strength shows more than sixfold abrupt increase at the transition pressure of Pc = 6 GPa, from {sigma}{sub y}{sup {alpha}} {approx} 180 MPa in the low-pressure phase of {alpha}-Zr to {sigma}{sub y}{sup {omega}} {approx} 1180 MPa in the high-pressure phase of {omega}-Zr. The observed enhancement provides an alternate route for material strengthening and is the most significant among the known strengthening techniques for metals. Our findings support the theoretical simulations of the substantial covalent bonding and 'rougher' corrugation of slip planes for dislocations in themore » {omega}-phase of zirconium.« less
  • Here, we report comprehensive studies on the high-pressure structural and electrical transport properties of the layered transition metal chalcogenide (Cr 2S 3) up to 36.3 GPa. A structural phase transition was observed in the rhombohedral Cr 2S 3 near 16.5 GPa by the synchrotron angle dispersive X-ray diffraction measurement using a diamond anvil cell. Through in situ resistance measurement, the electric resistance value was detected to decrease by an order of three over the pressure range of 7–15 GPa coincided with the structural phase transition. Measurements on the temperature dependence of resistivity indicate that it is a semiconductor-to-metal transition inmore » nature. The results were also confirmed by the electronic energy band calculations. Above results may shed a light on optimizing the performance of Cr 2S 3 based applications under extreme conditions.« less
