Size-dependent pressure-induced amorphization: a thermodynamic panorama.


Below a critical particle size, some pressurized compounds (e.g. TiO2, Y2O3, PbTe) undergo a crystal-to-amorphous transformation instead of a polymorphic transition. This effect reflects the greater propensity of nanomaterials for amorphization. In this work, a panorama of thermodynamic interpretations is given: first, a descriptive analysis based on the… (More)
