Enhanced Friedel structure and proton pairing in dense solid hydrogen.

Abstract

The mechanism of proton pairing in dense solid hydrogen, and its progression with density, are both studied using effective potentials between protons which include electronic response up to quadratic terms. For high pressures nonlinear effects originating with different pairs are crucial in establishing the net attraction within a given pair, and in this… (More)
