Title: Kinetics of the B1-B2 phase transition in KCl under rapid compression

Abstract

Kinetics of the B1-B2 phase transition in KCl has been investigated under various compression rates (0.03–13.5 GPa/s) in a dynamic diamond anvil cell using time-resolved x-ray diffraction and fast imaging. Our experimental data show that the volume fraction across the transition generally gives sigmoidal curves as a function of pressure during rapid compression. Based upon classical nucleation and growth theories (Johnson-Mehl-Avrami-Kolmogorov theories), we propose a model that is applicable for studying kinetics for the compression rates studied. The fit of the experimental volume fraction as a function of pressure provides information on effective activation energy and average activation volume at a given compression rate. The resulting parameters are successfully used for interpreting several experimental observables that are compression-rate dependent, such as the transition time, grain size, and over-pressurization. The effective activation energy (Q eff) is found to decrease linearly with the logarithm of compression rate. When Q eff is applied to the Arrhenius equation, this relationship can be used to interpret the experimentally observed linear relationship between the logarithm of the transition time and logarithm of the compression rates. The decrease of Q eff with increasing compression rate results in the decrease of the nucleation rate, which is qualitatively inmore » agreement with the observed change of the grain size with compression rate. In conclusion, the observed over-pressurization is also well explained by the model when an exponential relationship between the average activation volume and the compression rate is assumed.« less
