Abrupt discontinuity of the bulk modulus pressure dependence in Fe64Ni36.


X-ray diffraction and ultrasonic measurements have been carried out simultaneously up to 7 GPa at ambient temperature on a polycrystalline sample of Fe64Ni36 Invar alloy. The bulk modulus is found to increase linearly with pressure with an unusual low value (1.4) of dB/dP up to about 3.1(2) GPa followed by a regular slope (3.6) at higher pressure. The… (More)
