Title: Compression of CdCu3Ti4O12 Perovskite to 55 GPa

Abstract

Synchrotron x-ray diffraction measurements of CdCu{sub 3}Ti{sub 4}O{sub 12} (CDCTO) were performed up to 55.5 GPa. There is no structural phase transformation in this pressure range. The irregular curvature shifts of the P V curve are attributed to the grain surface effect. Analysis indicates that the grain surface of CDCTO is stiffer than the grain interior at higher pressures. We point out that the atoms on grain surfaces must be either densely packed or have a strong correlation with the gain interior in order to have a high dielectric constant, as in CaCu{sub 3}Ti{sub 4}O{sub 12}. The derived bulk modulus K of CDCTO is approximately 235 {+-} 7 GPa with K = 5.1 {+-} 0.4.

  • Synchrotron single-crystal x-ray diffraction experiments have been performed on corundum-type Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} up to a pressure of 55 GPa in Ne and He pressure transmitting media. Diffraction experiments were complemented by measurements of optical absorption spectra with single crystal samples up to 60 GPa. Results of the diffraction data analysis rule out the earlier reported monoclinic distortion at 15-30 GPa, but indicate evidence of two discontinuous transitions of electronic or magnetic nature, most likely associated with a change in magnetic ordering and charge transfer. The compression mechanism established from single crystal refinements indicates much smaller distortion of the Cr{supmore » 3+} coordination environment than was previously assumed.« less
  • The principal Hugoniot for liquid hydrogen was obtained up to 55 GPa under laser-driven shock loading. The pressure and density of compressed hydrogen were determined by impedance matching to a quartz standard. The shock temperature was independently measured from the brightness of the shock front. Hugoniot data of hydrogen provide a good benchmark to modern theories of condensed matter. The initial number density of liquid hydrogen is lower than that for liquid deuterium, and this results in shock-compressed hydrogen having a higher compression and higher temperature than deuterium at the same shock pressure.
  • Most of the chemical elements have now been compressed close to or above 100 GPa (1 Mbar) pressure in diamond-anvil cells and the pressure–volume room-temperature isotherms have been measured. We collect these data and use simple lattice-dynamics models to reduce the isotherms to 0 K. We have extended the published work by making new diamond-anvil-cell measurements on Cr and Rh, and by conducting density-functional calculations on the elements Po, At, Rn, Fr, Ra, and Ac. The 0 K data are tabulated for all elements 1 ≤ Z ≤ 92 and 0 ≤ P ≤ 100 GPa. These data are usefulmore » for generating wide-range equation of state models and for studying the stability of chemical compounds at high pressure (“Megabar chemistry”). As a result, the tables presented here are intended to be reference thermodynamic tables for use in high-pressure research. Further experimental and theoretical work will be needed to extend the tables to higher pressure and to improve accuracy.« less
  • The X-ray diffraction patterns are recorded from polycrystalline iron sample compressed in a diamond anvil cell up to 55 GPa. The maximum micro-stress in the sample, a measure of compressive strength, is derived from the line-width analysis. The strength of iron in the body centered cubic (BCC)-phase is 1.1 {+-} 0.2 GPa. This value is in good agreement with the strength derived from the hardness vs. grain-size data. The strength increases steeply during the BCC-hexagonal closed packed (HCP) transition. The strength-pressure data for HCP-iron fit the relation {sigma} = 2.9+0.028P, where {sigma} and P are the compressive strength and pressuremore » in GPa, respectively. The present results agree well with those obtained from the line shift analysis carried out in earlier studies.« less
