  • Ammonium perchlorate (AP) showed previously unreported phase behavior when studied in a diamond anvil cell (DAC) at high temperature (to 693 K) and high pressure (to {approximately}26 GPa). Liquid droplets, observed above the known 513 K orthorhombic-to-cubic phase transition, are interpreted as the onset to melting. The melting point decreased with increasing pressure. Mid-infrared FTIR spectra of the residue showed only AP. The AP melt may contribute to shock insensitivity of AP-based propellants. Gas formation was seen at higher temperatures. A phase diagram was constructed using the appearance of liquid and gas as solid-liquid and liquid-gas transitions. Preliminary pressurized differentialmore » scanning calorimetry data showed a weak pressure dependence (to {approximately}6.9 MPa) for the orthorhombic-to-cubic phase transition.« less
  • The many forms of carbon have interesting and diverse properties. Diamond, amorphous diamond (amorphous sp{sup 3} carbon) graphite, amorphous carbon (amorphous sp{sup 2} carbon) amorphous sp{sup 3}/sp{sup 2} solutions with and without hydrogen, Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) all have particular utility in tribological applications such that friction and wear coatings have extensive potential industrial application. The particular application will be dependent on the deposition process, the contact surface chemistry, hardness, surface finish, the loading and speed of the interfacial motion and the environment in which the surfaces are contained. This paper will review these materials and their tribological applications.
  • The structure and diamond-graphite phase transition in ultradispersed diamond (UDD) have been investigated by X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy. It has been shown that some features of Raman spectrum are an manifestation of the dimensional effect in diamond nanocrystals. The temperature of the phase transition diamond-graphite in LTDD is essentially smaller than in bulk diamond single crystals.
  • Diamond photoconducting detectors (PCDs) are one of the primary x-ray diagnostics for [ital z]-pinch experiments at Sandia National Laboratories' Saturn facility. Diamond PCDs represent a significant advance in the state of the art for electrical x-ray detectors because of their stability of response, overall flatness of response, and ease of use. We have observed no aging effects in detectors used for years. Five PCDs on Saturn experiments where 1--3 TW of keV x-ray power is emitted in 5--20-ns pulses by [ital z]-pinch x-ray sources are routinely fielded. Typical PCDs used at Sandia have dimensions of 1 mm width [times]3 mmmore » long [times]0.5 mm thick. The techniques used in the assembly, fielding, and calibration of diamond PCDs will be described.« less
