  • Compression measurements were performed for the first time on nanocrystalline [gamma]-alumina utilizing a diamond anvil cell (DAC) and the energy dispersive X-ray diffraction method. The cubic unit cell (a = 0.7924 nm) for [gamma]-alumina was found to have a volume compression of about 2.4% over the pressure range from ambient to 3.9 GPa at room temperature under both hydrostatic and nonhydrostatic conditions. Using the first-order Bridgman equation and another equation of state, the isothermal bulk modulus (B[sub 0]) was determined to be 162 [+-] 14 GPa and Young's modulus (E) was estimated to be 253 [+-] 22 GPa assuming amore » Poisson's ratio for [gamma]-alumina of 0.24 [+-] 0.2.« less
  • Samples from the reduced magnesium titanate spinel system (Mg{sub 1+y}Ti{sub 2{minus}y}{sup x+}O{sub 4}) have been examined using selected area electron diffraction (SAED) and high resolution electro microscopy (HREM) imaging. Unusual microstructural features are observed in samples in the region of the system (i.e., where x, the average Ti valency, lies between 3.26 < x < 3.33) where transitions to zero electrical resistance on cooling below 50 K are reported. These features do not occur in samples from outside this compositional range. Lamellar features with wavelengths up to 750 nm are observed, and associated electron diffraction patterns demonstrate streaking of diffractionmore » spots around the direct beam. The presence of streaks, rather than divergent spots, indicates fanning of the structure across the lamellar boundaries and HREM images further indicate that interlamellar boundaries are coherent. Linear streaking parallel to <111> observed in some crystals may represent the same feature viewed perpendicular to a lamellar boundary. These observations are consistent with exsolution of a single high temperature phase to two co-existing spinels of slightly different compositions. The observation of coherent lamellar boundaries and streaking of electron diffraction spots are consistent with spinodal decomposition as the mechanism of exsolution. Fine-scale lamellar structures parallel to {l_brace}111{r_brace} are also observed, which are texturally distinct from those described above. Streaking of electron diffraction spots parallel to <110> may be associated with these features. These lamellae probably represent intimate spinel-spinel-loid intergrowths, rather than ordering of cation vacancies or another process.« less
