Abstract

We have studied the high-pressure and high-temperature behaviour of α-PbO2-type TiO2-SnO2 (5 mol%) nanocomposite up to 62.3 GPa and 1700 K in a laser-heated diamond-anvil cell by means of synchrotron energy-dispersive x-ray diffraction. We found that it transforms to the baddeleyite phase at 19.4 GPa at room temperature. This phase was stable up to about 40 GPa. At 62.3 GPa and 1700 K, the diffraction pattern showed that there exists another nonquenchable phase. We discussed the mechanisms for these high-pressure transformations in α-PbO2-type TiO2-SnO2 (5 mol%) nanocomposite.
