Metastable Bi under Extreme Conditions Investigated by Combined XAS and XRD

We report the results of a detailed experimental study carried out at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) providing an unprecedented insight into the metastable phase diagram of Bi. In particular we focus the attention on a novel metastable crystalline structure of Bi compatible with the β -tin structure. It is reasonable to identify the new… CONTINUE READING
